Netflix Producing Live-Action Death Note Sequel

Netflix Producing Live-Action Death Note SequelThere were some pretty strong negative reactions in the anime community about Netflix’s live-action Death Note film, but it seems to have been successful enough to warrant a sequel.

That’s the word from the Hollywood Reporter, which says Netflix is developing a sequel to the 2017 film.

The Hollywood Reporter also reports that Greg Russo, who is also attached to Resident Evil and Mortal Kombat reboots, is working on a script.

According to Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, the 2017 Death Note was a “sizable” success for the streaming service.

The film starred Nat Wolff as Light Turner and Willem Dafoe as Ryuk and was directed by Adam Wingard.
