Cult classic Death Note is set to get its own Netflix film adaptation which will be released onto the streaming service on August 25th and will star Paper Town’s Nat Wolff as the main character Light Turner.
The film will be an adaptation of the original manga series which told the story of Light Yagami, a Japanese high school student, who found a death note dropped by the shinigami Ryuk (played by William Defoe). With the power of the death note Light sets out to rid the world of criminals under the alias of Kira, with super detective L (played by Keith Stanfield) setting out to uncover him.
