After a few speculations, we are now getting a sequel to Netflix’s Death Note film.
Well, instead of a big announcement, the confirmation of the movie was buried in one report from THR. This had broken down the entire future of Netflix’s blockbuster film division. After the controversial debut last year, the movie, Death Note was a subject of a lot of discussion in this article and then came the reveal:
“Among properties it already owns, Netflix is developing a sequel to 2017’s horror-thriller Death Note, which Sarandos has called a “sizable” success, with Greg Russo writing the script.”
There is no confirmation whatsoever that Wingard will direct but should be noted that Russo is a new addition as the scriptwriter. The very same question does loom over the whole cast of this movie, like for Nat Wolff as the protagonist, Light Turner, Lakeith Stanfield, his enemy, the investigator “L” and Willem Dafoe (“Ryuk”).
The very first movie had left everything on a huge cliffhanger and Light had escaped L’s pursuit. He was then discovered by his father, James. L had discovered a way to get revenge against Light, and this was in the form of a Death Note page that was left behind by Light’s dead girlfriend, named Mia.
All the viewers had been left on the edges of their seats, and they are now waiting to see if L will betray all his principals and use the Death Note against Light.
Unlike many anime adaptations, Death Note has a possibility to grow into its very own franchise.
