Live action adaptation of anime/manga or video games can leave a bitter taste to certain fans. Released in 2017, Netflix users and fans was able to see the “American” live action movie of Death Note. The movie was heavily criticized for major and obvious changes on the characters and their personalities. The movie got so much hate that the director of the movie deleted his Twitter account because he got death threats!

However, it looks like this movie is coming back with a sequel. Revealed at THR (The Hollywood Report), the Netflix Death Note movie will be getting a sequel. As far as we know, it’s unknown if the director Adam Wingard will return. The writer of the movie will be Greg Russo who will also be writing the story for the upcoming reboot film Mortal Kombat.

  1. As much as I didn’t mind this movie on the second watch when I stopped trying to look for Death Note in it, there is zero reason for it to have a sequel and given the reception of the first movie, it just seems like they want to throw money away on this one.

  2. I have yet to see this one myself…but I am surprised that a sequel is in the works. As it really has been getting a lot of hate. Hope to see the film myself at some point in September 😊😊

  3. Honestly, I’m not surpised that they’re thinking of a sequel since, even though it was hated on, it was pretty popular to hate.

    My only issue with the movie isn’t that it’s set in America but that they actually *tried* to adapt the original story. They probably could have done a much better job if they had characters completely unrelated to the cast (maybe with the exception of Ryuk) and so wouldn’t have had to deal with fan expectation so much *sigh*.

    • Yeah that would be pretty interesting to see original characters instead of using characters based on the original series. I guess with this movie, the crew wanted to imagine the characters being in America instead of Japan.
