The Hollywood Reporter confirmed some exciting news this morning for fans of horror, it would seem the live-action English language Death Note movie has a new director. None other than Your Next and The Guest director Adam Wingard.
The new film is based on a Japanese manga which tells the story of a young man and a magical notebook. Not just any magical notebook though, this one allows him to kill anybody whose name he writes down. We could all do with one of those every once in awhile.
The Twistedwing favourite is currently working on The Woods for Lionsgate, but is expected to begin work on Death Note soon enough. As much as we love Wingard though, not least for his overly familiar name, it does mean that Shane Black (Iron Man 3) is no longer attached. More news when we have it.
