I really sincerely hope that Vertigo are NOT making this Death Note film. Theyre going to Americanize the shit out of it! From what Ive heard theyre changing Lights name to Luke and theres no Shinigami in it. If they bastardize this film theyre going to be very dissapointed when it does poorly at the box office.
