*shudders at thought* This will not turn out well. It isn't just America that is horrible at adaption, it is the matter of A Jock playing Japan's best. I have seen all of the HSM movies, hoping he would do better each time. As well as 17 Again. He just can't do it! He doesn't look the part! I don't mean to bash your opinions. But I simply cannot put the two together in my head without a horrible outcome. He may be able to portray emotion, but Light is more than emotion. Light is a role model, hope, the dawning of a cleansing era. My fear is that Light Yagami will be turned into the next Troy Bolton. I sign the petition as a respectable follower of both Kira and L!

I honestly just don't want this to happen. I'm tired of anime being brought into the US and made into live actions. I just don't like it.

I don't like Japanese movies, either, but I love the USA's. Maybe they just shouldn't mix? I mean, to portray most anime, you have to be, say, not much realistic.

And I also just happen to hate live actions, no matter their origin.

Online petitions matter very little to corporate America. All we're doing by signing this petition is basically sending more hate vibes around and stuff. Why can't we just shut up and deal with it like we do every other movie that comes out? I mean come on guys, it's a movie. The world won't end if someone bad gets in it. xD (And personally I see no problems with who is being considered as is.)

One of the reasons why there's so much opposition to this idea is that when everyone says Zac Effron, your mind automatically runs to Disney and HSM. You can't continuously think of one actor based on their movie or movies. Actors are supposed to  be able to play the roles they are given, audience members are supposed to clear their minds of the actor's last role and think of them as the current character. 

Give the man a chance, its not like he's tied to Disney anymore anyway, so now he can do whatever he wants.

Personally, I think he could do a decent job. People surprise you, besides he's a good actor.~

Must agree. I was very surprised in his recent role in '17 Again'. He was a much more versatile actor that I had previously realized.
I say give him a chance.

I felt the same way after watching 17 Again. I'll admit as readily as anyone that at first glance he may not seem good for more then campy, heavily-marketed Disney Channel musicals, but I thought twice about judging him based only on HSM after watching that. Besides, his hair is almost perfect for Light. Not saying that no one else could possibly achieve the look considering it's not something insane like Vegeta's hair (oh god, Dragonball Evolution, now that's a horrible movie) but it seems like a good fit.

Another thing (and I haven't read the whole forum yet so someone might have pointed this out already) but in the beginning of the manga Light is innocent and boy-next-doorish. Zac Efron's got that without even trying. His appearance is disarming, which is why he'd be a good Light to start off. Now, it's his transition throughout the series from well-intentioned vigilante to psychotic megalomaniac that he'd have to nail.

Besides.

The kind of parodies that could come out of this would be not just EPIC, but legendary.

I'm more worried about someone who can do a good L, Light is the average goodlooking guy, and he can be captured, his personaillty. But L seems like a much harder person to perfect.

Pause.  PAUSE. 


WHAT.  THE.  HELL. 





Okay, I do find Light to be incredibly hot, but not because I think he's a good role model and a beacon of hope, it's because he's a psychopathic asshole.  I wouldn't mind some time with the fictional character, but really... Come on.  COME ON.
and contributing to the topic, I'd like to see if Zac Efron's capable of this.  I would see this if he was cast into the role.  And I think he could look like Light, maybe if he stopped looking curious all the time.  I'm bad at sentences leave me alone

..OKAY WHAT.

What's this about Light being a role model? I... Pardon my surprise, please, but that's really not... not what I would call him.

I like to think of it this way.
Light, at first, is actually just... your average college freshman/ highschool graduate. He is devilishly good looking, and a whiz-kid at that. Even there I have no problem with Zac portraying Light. (Seriously, though? He looks the part. Am I alone in thinking that Zac does indeed, if even a little, resemble Light?)

It is his transition that is the most difficult part of Light to portray. IMO, no even the Japanese adaptaton focused enough on that part. Character complexes are the most important part of a character that actors strive to reproduce. This is why the Joker, in The Dark Knight, is such an appealing character. Heath Ledger's Joker was not only the psycotic clown shown in the other Batman movies, but also his past, and an explanation:
"To prepare for the role, Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character's posture, voice, and personality, and kept a diary, in which he recorded the Joker's thoughts and feelings."
I'm not saying that Zac Efron is gonna go all out like this. I'm not saying that he will be as awesome as Heath Ledger was as the Joker. What I'm trying to get across is that Zac has the rare capability to show even the subtlest of his characters' schemes. One of the greatest things I was surprised abot in his recent role in 17 Again was his immaculate portrayal of a husband falling (again) for his wife. He forgets himself. And that alone is cause for applause, because, as easy as it sounds that is the hardest thing to do as an actor.

As soon as I lost that image of Zac as just another 'nice-looking guy whose acting skils were overpuffed by Disney', I saw that he definitely has potential to be an incredible actor.

He was just cursed with a face that makes him look eternally 18. XD

I think that, in a way, everyone copies each other. If there's a hit thing that sweeps a country, other countries will try to make their own adaption of it. Ex: Married with Children (USA to UK), The Office (UK to USA), Hana kimi (Japan to Korea), and the list goes on an on.
It's the same for food, fashion, electronics, and just about everything else.
The only thing I'd want is accuracy.
If you're gonna copy something, don't botch it up with a bunch of things that are going to take away from the original storyline (Dragonball movie, anyone? lol).

we already had one live action movie! (which was good in Japanese but the dub made me want to throw up)
and i just KNOW by americanizing it, the story will be so screwed with we'd never make the connection with the real Death Note except that the titles are the same. I HOPE they don't make a movie like this :-\

Wowwwww guys.

You guys are acting like Disney OWNS Zac Efron. It just so happens he got his first big break there, so what? He's a perfectly capable actor, and you're just assuming he's not going to do well because he's been in "family friendly" films. Disney isn't in charge of this production, I'm not sure who is, but still.

I do not want to watch this movie while there are preteen Zac Efron fangirl behind me.

"Like O.M.G. Misa I am like totally going to use the death note. teehee"

I totally agree... I actually don't think he's a HORRIBLE actor, I mean it's hard to really judge someones kills when all you have to base them off is the same roles that he's been type-casted in over and over again.

My worry is more about the rest of the cast, because if they were to get Zac Efron as their "big name" for the movie and then haphazardly fill the rest of the roles, THEN I would get irritated. A movie can't be carried by one person alone.

I agree with you there, using him to make a big name for themselves then being lazy is different then casting him and others because of talent.

I have the felling the the director is going to kill the movie. But I would say pull some no name from musical theather and make him Light. Theather always has the best actors.

^ That's a bit rife with hypocrisy isn't it? Zac Efron's incapable because he was in a musical and yet any no-name theatre actor could surpass him in acting. Hm...

Now THAT is cool. It makes me think that him being chosen for the role as Light is an even better idea than before. Better to have someone who has read, and knows, the series over someone who just randomly got selected into the part; right?

Man, I didn't know that. We so should try inviting him next year!~

Read, knows, likes, looks like. I think it's perfect and don't understand why people are opposed on such a grand scale to the idea of him playing Light.

Just cuz it has the possibility of being a Disney movie (which I doubt it will be...Death Note is kinda dark for "Today's Disney") doesn't mean it's going to be a musical :\
Don't get upset about unconfirmed factors until they truly become an issue.

From the looks of who's producing it...this isn't going to be a Disney movie by any standards. In fact, the people making it mainly create horror films. So you should be more nervous of them turning it into a crappy gore fest than a musical.

I agree with Cassiopeia though, he's perfect for the part so what's the matter guys? Is it really just because he was on disney? He had gigs BEFORE High School Musical and AFTER it too. So I see no problem.

I remember that episode!  :D
