In yet another addition to the Hollywood remake list, Death Note has now been green lit for a Hollywood remake by Vertigo Entertainment. You may remember this company for remaking Japanese horror classics such as The Grudge, Dark Water, The Departed (Infernal Affairs), The Eye and recently Shutter.
It has been tipped that The Parlapanides Brothers currently working on a remake of the classic Johnny Depp TV series 21 Jump Street will be writing the screenplay for Death Note.
With two Japanese films already released plus a spinoff film of L, Death Note is now really truly coming to life. Just don't start writing people's names in a notebook and proclaiming that you're Kira.
