Meet Nat Wolff's Light in the new Death Note character poster!


Following the L character poster released last week, Netflix has released another new Death Note character poster featuring Nat Wolff as Light Turner along with a new description for the anti-hero:

Light is a high school student who begins a crusade to rid the world of evil when he finds a notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written in it.

Like Ghost in the Shell before it, Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of the hit manga/anime Death Note has been surrounded by controversy. From changing the race of the characters to moving the story to America, there’s been an intense debate among fans as to whether the new movie can do the original anime films and manga series justice.

Despite all of that, the project is still moving forward. The American Death Note adaptation is directed by Adam Wingard, and it also stars Margaret Qualley as Mia Sutton, with Shea Whigham as Light’s father, James Turner, and Keith Stanfield as L, an enigmatic investigator who has been assigned to bring down Light. Willem Dafoe is also in the cast as the voice of Ryuk, a demon who begins communicating with Light.

We suggest you obey the rules. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

Death Note is produced by Roy Lee (The Ring, The Departed), Dan Lin (The LEGO Movie, Sherlock Holmes), Jason Hoffs (Edge of Tomorrow), and Masi Oka (Heroes Reborn, Hawaii Five-O). Miri Yoon (Behaving Badly), Jonathan Eirich (Hammerspace), John Powers Middleton (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, The LEGO Movie), and Brendan Ferguson (Big Eyes, Reasonable Doubt) are executive producers. The movie will premiere on Netflix on August 25.
