Death Note Live Action Licensed!

VIZ Pictures is proud to announce the licensing of DEATH NOTE and its sequel, DEATH NOTE: THE LAST NAME, from Nippon Television (NTV) for North American theatrical and DVD distribution. DEATH NOTE is based on the popular anime and manga series which have gained a massive following in Japan and North America. “Both films were smash hits in Japan upon their initial release, and the established popularity of the manga in the United States, combined with the highly anticipated debut of the anime series, will prime audiences for the excitement and tension that the live feature films bring to the story,” said VIZ Pictures President and CEO Seiji Horibuchi. VIZ Pictures is looking forward to bringing you DEATH NOTE in theatres and on DVD as soon as possible. Stay tuned!
