The latest live-action Death Note movie will be having multiple Death Notes at the same time (six in fact), and one of them will belong to the character being played by AKB48 Idol, Rina Kawaei.
Unfortunately, in the movie, she would be really different from how the fans know her in real life, as she will be one nasty villain who uses her Death Note to indiscriminately kill her victims. Her character is described as the worst Death Note-user out there.
The movie will be following a duel between Kira’s successor and L’s successor, who will both be battling over the six Death Notes that are currently in the human world. Actor Sousuke Ikematsu will be playing L’s successor, Ryuuzaki, who is also a master detective and he is related to the great detective himself. He and Kawaei will be joined by Masahiro Higashide, who plays Tsukuru Mishima, an investigator in the newly-formed “Death Note Unit,” and Masaki Suda, who plays Yuugi Shion, a cyber terrorist who idolizes Kira and uses his skills to find the six Death Notes.
Titled “Death Note 2016,” the film will be a sequel to the 2006 live-action adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s internationally acclaimed thriller manga, which is slated to premiere in the autumn of this year.
