The live-action Death Note movie coming this year in Japan has revealed that Shido Nakamura will be returning to the role of Ryuk. He voiced the shinigami who baited Light Yagami with his Death Note in the original anime, as well as in the 2006 Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name live-action films. A first look at his reincarnation for the 10th anniversary live-action was also unveiled in a still from the movie, as shown below.
In the story of the new film, an advanced information society is globally targeted by cyber-terrorists. Two fated adversaries who “inherited the DNA” of Light and the master detective L emerge, as portrayed by Masaki Suda and Sosuke Ikematsu, and their followers clash in a war over the six Death Notes on Earth. Directed by the Gantz live-action’s Shinsuke Sato, this first screen adaptation to stick to the manga’s original six Death Notes max rule will open across Japan from October 29th.
