News from TOKYOGRAPH
Matsuyama Kenichi stars in
"L Change the WorLd."
"L change the WorLd," the movie spinoff of the "Death Note" franchise, is being released in novel form on December 25. The news was announced through the movie's website on Friday.
The movie, which opens on February 9, covers the final 23 days of L (played by Matsuyama Kenichi), which is not part of the original manga or films. To create the story, producers turned to a well-known author, who at the time had not yet read the original work.
The writer is not attaching his or her name to the novel; instead, it will be published under the name of "M." The name is said to be symbolic, referring to "where those who have used the Death Note go," which is "nothingness" ("mu").
The novel version reportedly includes many scenes that do not appear in the film.
Darvish & SAEKO Ties the Knot
