WB's DEATH NOTE Movie Will Definitely Be Rated R

Producer Roy Lee assures fans that the planned live-action Death Note movie from Warner Bros. will definitely be rated R. "It’s definitely for adults. It is zero chance it will be below an R-rating."

Collider recently caught up with film producer Roy Lee at DICE 2016 and got the scoop on the intended rating for the Death Note film.

"It’s definitely for adults. It is zero chance it will be below an R-rating. [The tone of the film] will be one of the first manga adaptations that feels very grounded but still has fantastical elements." Lee added that he's "fairly confident" that production on the Death Note film will start this year.

The cast includes Nat Wolf as the lead and Margaret Qualley as the female lead. Adam Wingard (You're Next, The Guest) will direct the manga adaptation for Western audiences.  Are you interested in a live-action Death Note film or is the property better left as a manga/anime?

Created as a manga, writer  Tsugumi Ohba and illustrator by Takeshi Obata have witnessed their 2003 creation spawn a spinoff manga, anime, anime film and Japanese live-action film.  The story centers around a bright Japanese high school student who randomly discovers a notebook that lets him kill anyone just by writing their name in it.
