‘Mortal Kombat’ screenwriter Greg Russo has revealed details about ‘Death Note 2’ – a sequel to the Hollywood remake criticized by Netflix.
In an interview with We Got This Covered, he revealed that the script for the sequel will bring a lot more to the original storyline.
“It’s funny because it sounds like a genre shift, but actually it all comes down to the same things. It’s about adapting the franchise. It’s about trying to please a fan and trying to do it the right way. I am a huge fan of the Death Note manga, I am a huge fan of the original source material and I think this is one of the best manga ever written. And so, for me, I didn’t play a role in Death Note, the first movie Netflix did, but I found kind of a take on what I wanted to do in a sequel. And part of that is, I wanted to go back to the source material. I wanted to go back to what made the original material so good, so we’re doing something really cool with it. I hope there will be more information about this soon, ”he said.
Ted Sarandos, CEO of the company, considers the first film to be a considerable public success, although reviews have been negative.
Director Adam Wingard returns to direct.
The main cast includes Nat Wolff, Lakeith Stanfield, Willem Dafoe, and Margaret Qualley.
‘Death Note 2’ is not due out until 2022.
