Willem Dafoe will play Ryuk the Shinigami in Death Note. Kind of perfect (see below)...

Just, yes.

Anyways, for those unfamiliar, Death Note follows a high schooler (played by Nat Wolff) who comes across a notebook bestowed with sinister powers, that allows for Wolff to kill off anyone by picturing their face and writing their name in the notebook.

Death Note is being produced by Roy Lee of The Ring, and Dan Lin of Sherlock Holmes; the film debuts on Netflix in 2017.
