Duffer Brothers to Head Death Note Live-Action Film Adaptation on Netflix

Netflix announced Wednesday that it is working with the Duffer Brothers, who are responsible for Stranger Things' incredible run. 

They have already begun to plan a Stranger Things spinoff series and a new stage play set in the world and mythology of the show. 

In addition, the announcement mentions that the Duffer Brothers will be tackling a live-action TV adaptation for the acclaimed manga and anime series Death Note.

On Wednesday, Netflix announced that the Duffer Brothers had established a new production company called Upside Down Pictures. 

This is where Netflix and the Duffer Brothers will collaborate on a wider range of projects, including a Stranger Things play and spin-off. 

The Duffer Brothers will begin work on the fifth and final season of Stranger Things after wrapping up the fourth season. 

It appears that the live-action Death Note adaption is next on their priority list.

Death Note is an anime and manga series that was originally written and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. It has become a cult favorite over the years.

Netflix released the live-action Death Note feature movie in 2017. It was poorly received by critics and fans alike. 

A sequel was rumored to be in the works in 2018, with Greg Russo serving as the writer. This project has not received any significant updates.
