Zac Efron says Death Note remake not coming anytime soon


While I don't particularly want to see an American remake of Death Note, it's obvious it is still on the horizon, because when something makes money Hollywood must jump in and do it their way. If we have to have one, I don't really have a problem with Zac Efron playing Light, because, well, he fits the bill as far as looks go. Acting may be a different story, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

At any rate, if you're dreading the film you may get some relief in Efron's recent comments that the film is not coming anytime soon. ANN reports that he was speaking to Collider.com when the topic of the Death Note film was raised. Efron was quoted as saying:

I love Death Note, and we were, kind of, working on it right now. You know, it's not…it's definitely not something that would be coming up soon. [Turns to Me and Orson Welles director Richard Linklater] What's the classic answer, Rick? 'It's not on the front burner.' No, no, it's something that was … I feel like, regardless of whatever I say, it's going to be [interpreted by the media to be] my next movie. No, it's not. It was an idea. Who knows? I had a meeting on it."

Wow. Well spoken guy. Anyway .. not happening soon. Good news?
