    Re: American Death Note Movie???

    I don't want the Americans to touch it. They tend to ruin everything and I don't think they can handle the subtle cultural attitudes that pervade in Japan. Plus, I don't think any American can properly play L. Also, I don't think people here (mainstream audiences) would understand the concept of the shinigami, the school systems, etc.

    Just leave the masterpiece alone.

    No good can come from this. When will American film makers learn that there's no way they can improve on Japanese movies, they're not made for American actors.

    I'm thinking the special effects will be amazing (they were great in the original I thought) but who will they get to play the main characters? I'm thinking they'll make L into essentially a goth and will make Light out to be a lot worse than he is. I'm not saying I sympathise with his character, but the movie and manga does to an extent- I can't see the American movie doing so.

    Do you think they'll get well known actors to play Light, L and Misa? If they're going to insist on ruining Death Note I hope they do it with unknown actors.

    A remake of Battle Royale is also in the works (the original also starred Tatsuya Fujiwara (Light)). Bad idea.

    I really don't know what to expect from this. It probably won't be better than the Japanese version, but, depending on the actors, this could actually be really good! I always say, "Never judge a book by it's cover" ... Well, I also always say "I really shouldn't be doing this but"...

    I don't think they should do an americanized Death Note either. Why do it, when there's already a friggin movie or two.

    The only way it'd work is if they DID change the story significantly. Why not do a "What if a Shinigami(easily identified as a Grim Reaper) dropped their Death Note in Las Vegas or New Orleans?" .........too much change would be needed.

    Yeah, it wouldn't work.

    like i mean ... Americans have this habit of ruining Asian films its sucky
    It COULD be interesting i suppose, but definately not the same
    and then you'd have all these "death note fans" that no jack all about the anime or actual movies
