2016 live-action Death Note movie leads introduced

Set ten years after the story of the original tragic thriller manga, and also coinciding with the 10th anniversary of Shusuke Kaneko’s live-action movies, the new Death Note live-action movie now has its leads for the triple-edged rivalry. Sōsuke Ikematsu, who played The Last Samurai‘s Higen Masahiro, is L’s successor Ryuzaki, while the live-action Parasyte‘s Hideo Shimada, Masahiro Higashide, is Death Note Investigator Mishima. And completing the trio, Masaki Suda, known as the live-action Assassination Classroom‘s Karma Akabane, is the Kira reverant cyber-criminal Yuki Shion. All three are pictured in costume below, going from left to right.


This new film will be directed by the Gantz live-action’s Shinsuke Sato, its story anchored in cyber-terrorism and the original six Death Notes max rule. The manga decreed that only six Notes can exist on Earth at any one time, but neither the anime, live-action series, stage play nor any movies to date have enforced this rule. The first film to break this cycle will screen across Japan this fall.
