Warner Bros. Acquires Death Note

Warner Bros. Pictures has acquired rights to turn the Japanese manga series "Death Note" into a live-action film, reports Variety.

The studio has hired screenwriters Charley and Vlas Parlapanides to adapt the property.

The story centers on a college student who accidentally finds a misplaced "death note," infusing him with the power to kill merely by writing anyone's name on the page while picturing the person in his mind.

The 13-volume manga is a bestseller in Japan, and the film will be drawn from the first three installments, written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata.
