The live-action adaptation of the hit Japanese manga series "Death Note" excites a lot of fans. There's still very little information about this Netflix series, except that the director himself said that a teaser is coming out soon.

Adam Wingard announced on Twitter that a teaser will be released soon enough. In his post, he said: "Death Note teaser coming soon stop asking," and this is done in a way that teased fans even more - the message was posted via a cryptic image on a piece of a pink paper, Inverse said.

All we know for now is that the film will debut in 2018 and a specific date has not been released yet. Wingard said that the project underwent an extended period, but is already in its final stages of editing. It has a whopping budget of $40-$50 million, and is overseen by DN (Canada) Productions, Inc. using a screenplay by Charles & Vlas Parlapanides with Jeremy Slater.

According to ComicBook, fans expect that the movie is going to be dark, given that the plot follows a young boy who is gifted with the power to kill anyone at will. Another thing that fans expect is for the film's cast to give justice to the anime's characters, especially the god of death.

It has been confirmed that Nat Wolff will play Light Turner, Willem Dafoe as Ryuk, Margaret Qualley as Mia Sutton, Keith Stanfield as L, Paul Nakauchi as Watari, and Shea Whigham as James Turner. Dafoe's casting is considered dynamite by a lot of fans.

Wingard said that the "Death Note" film is going to be hyper-violent. Producers Roy Lee and Dan Lin said:  "Our vision for Death Note has always been to...introduce the world to this dark and mysterious masterpiece. The talent and diversity represented in our cast, writing, and producing teams reflect our belief in staying true to the story's concept of moral relevance - a universal theme that knows no racial boundaries."
