The film also stars Paul Nakauchi as Watari, Shea Whigham as James Turner and Masi Oka in an undisclosed role. Here’s the official synopsis:

Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

Death Note arrives on Netflix on August 25th.
