Stranger Things creators the Duffer Brothers are set to adapt a live-action Death Note project for Netflix as part of their newest production company, Upside Down Pictures.

Not a lot of info was unveiled by Matt and Ross Duffer, other than the fact that it will be a live-action television series adaptation of the Japanese manga and anime. This will mark the second time Netflix is producing a live-action Death Note, with the first dating back to the 2017 film that starred Nat Wolff, Lakeith Stanfield, Margaret Qualley, Shea Whigham, Paul Nakauchi, Jason Liles, and Willem Dafoe.

The Duffer Brothers’ Upside Down Pictures will “aim to create the kind of stories that inspired the Duffers growing up – stories that take place at that beautiful crossroads where the ordinary meets the extraordinary, where big spectacle co-exists with intimate character work, where heart wins out over cynicism.”

In related news, the Duffer Brothers confirmed a major character death in Stranger Things season four.
