Since “Ryuk” has had his moment, a trio of new character posters has been unleashed (courtesy of IMDb), featuring Nat Wolff as “Light Turner”, Lakeith Stanfield as “L”, and Margaret Qualley who plays “Mia Sutton”, AND is shown holding a “Death Note” too - for the coming Western adaptation of Japanese concept “DEATH NOTE” (tagged), scheduled for premiere on Netflix come August 25th, 2017.
"Light Turner, a bright student, stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Soon, the student-turned-vigilante finds himself pursued by a famous detective known only by the alias L.” (Written by Warner Bros. Pictures)
”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." (Written by Annonymous)
