Another American remake of an Asian franchise

Vertigo Scribbling Death Note Remake

Within Universal's production notes for The Strangers it has been revealed - under producer Doug Davison's bio - writers Vlas and Charles Parlapanides are penning an American remake of Death Note for Vertigo Films. The brothers are currently overseeing the development of CW's upcoming television series Undercover, directed by John Stockwell (Turistas).

Death Note, Shusuke Kaneko's adaptation of the popular manga, has become a cult hit and spawned a sequel Death Note: The Last Name. The story concerns a student, Light Yagami, who discovers a notebook that gives him the ability to jot someone's name down within its pages and kill someone.

Vertigo, in addition to producing Strangers, is also at work on a remake of Anguish.
