Oh, yes!

We reported that Netflix were making a Death Note movie a while ago (here) and now we have some very cool news to report…

It looks like FTN favourite Willem Dafoe will voice Ryuk the Shinigami!

Heck, let’s be honest, he even looks a little like him!

Based on the manga books about a high school student who comes finds a notebook that allows him to kill anyone by writing their name and thinking of their face. It’s a cracking story and well deserves a true update…

Dafoe stars with Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, Keith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi and Shea Whigham.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
