Variety said that Warner Bros. is set to take the Japanese manga series Death Note into a live-action movie. The story centers on a college student who accidentally finds a misplaced death note, infusing him with the power to kill merely by writing anyone's name on the page while picturing the person in his mind.

The film will be based on the first three books in the series penned by Tsugumi Ohba and not the three Japanese-language Death Note films , or the Anime series that has been translated and become very popular in English.

Charley and Vlas Parlapanides (War of the Gods) will adapt the script.
