We are getting a new live-action Death Note movie, and with a new cast of characters taking the battle over six Death Notes to new heights, a brand new teaser trailer for the film has finally been released:
The video features L, and previews the film’s story, which will be a battle for the six Death Notes that are on Earth. It also introduces us to the three main characters, the Death Note Unit’s “Ace Detective,” Tsukuru Mishima, played by Masahiro Higashide, as well as L’s successor, Ryuzaki, played by Sosuke Ikematsu. Rounding off the three main characters is Light’s fanatical follower and hacker, Yuuki Shien, played by Masaki Suda.
Based on Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s bestselling thriller manga, the film is set to premiere on October 29, 2016. The film’s story will be set 10 years after the events of the previous Death Note live-action films, which starred Tatsuya Fujiwara as Kira/ Light Yagami, and Kenichi Matsuyama as L. This means that the film will have an original story not found in the manga, anime, stage play, or the live-action TV series, and since the movie will be set 10 years after the first one, it will feature new characters. You can check out the three new leads through this link.
The new film will involve more Death Notes and Shinegami than previous adaptations, and will be directed by Gantz live-action movie director, Shisuke Sato. The film is slated to premiere sometime in October 29, 2016.
