Viz Nabs Death Note

Viz Media gets Death Note rights!Now this is a bit unexpected, but not too surprising if you think about it.

Viz Media just announced that they’ve nabbed all theatrical rights for the live action Death Note movies, Death Note (review) and Death Note: The Last Name (review).

They’ll be hosting a series of screenings starting with the Austin Fantastic Fest (September 20th-27th) and the Vancouver Asian Film Festival (November 1st-4th), with plans to throw down some more dates next year. This is the first horror film Viz Pictures has gotten behind in its short life, but I really hope it’s not the last!

We’ll drop you more details when we get ‘em!
