New Death Note Film Announced for 2016

Did an anime series, three films, a live-action TV series and a musical leave you thinking, “man, I could really use some more Death Note?”

If so, you are in luck: the series with “death” in the title that never dies will be back with another live-action film in 2016.

The film, which will serve as a sequel to the two 2006 Death Note films, will star characters who “inherited the DNA of Light and L” who are set to battle over the six Death Notes in the world. The plot will also involve cyber-terrorism.

Death Note 2016 will be directed by Shinsuke Sato, who previously directed the live-action Gantz and Library Wars films.

The teaser was first revealed after the final episode of the Death Note TV series Sunday. It’s unclear if any of the cast or crew from that series will be involved in the new film.
