Though still a ways away from release, the live-action adaptation of the popular Death Note series is getting some traction. Mainly in the casting of Nat Wolff as lead character Light Yagami…yes, in a story about death…the lead character is named Light.
Anyway, in case you don’t know about Death Note, here’s a brief synopsis:
“Light Yagami is a genius high school student who is about to learn about life through a book of death. When a bored shinigami, a God of Death, named Ryuk drops a black notepad called a Death Note, Light receives power over life and death with the stroke of a pen. Determined to use this dark gift for the best, Light sets out to rid the world of evil… namely the people he believes to be evil. Should anyone hold such power? The consequences of Light’s actions will set the world ablaze.”
