Trivia Death Note

Chris Britton (Aaron Peltz) had played Soichiro Yagami (renamed James Turner in this film) in 'Death Note' (2006). Adam Wingard read the 'Death Note' manga comic to find a way to translate the story to an American environment: "Death Note is such a Japanese thing. It became about what do these themes mean to modern day America, and how does that affect how we tell the story. What are the things that people chalk up to conspiracy theories? What kind of weird underground programs does the government have? How do those work in the world of 'Death Note'?". Filming began on July 7, 2016.
