It's an exciting day for Death Note fans because Nat Wolff will be starring in the upcoming live-action adaptation of the manga and anime series! Variety reports that the Paper Towns actor will be playing the lead role in the Adam Wingard-helmed project.

The series revolves around a student named Light Yagami, who discovers a notebook that lets him kill anyone by writing down the person's name.

That's a pretty intense departure from his previous stuff, but it's exciting! Filming is supposed to start next spring, so it might be a little while before we get to watch the actual movie. But this is a pretty big deal.

Are you excited for Nat and this movie? Let us know in the comments!
