Halia Abdel-Meguid, known for her work on The Devil in the White City and Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King and Peter Straub’s novel, The Talisman, is a fan of the original Death Note manga. According to Deadline, adapting from source material will be considerably more accessible for her because she has lived in Tokyo and is fluent in Japanese.

Death Note franchise has been adapted multiple times, including a critically-acclaimed anime series by Madhouse and several live-action movies. The 2017 American Death Note adaptation team will also be involved in the latest Netflix series adaptions, including Dan Lin, Roy Lin, Jonathan Eirich, and Miri Yoon.
