Though Dragonball's response was as expected, crappy, that isn't stopping Warner Bros. from trying their hand in Japanese manga. Making the first move, the studio has acquire the screen rights for Death Note and plans on making a live-action film.

Warner Bros. to Adapt Death Note

To be penned by scribes Charley and Vlas Parlapanides, Death Note centers on a college student who accidentally finds a misplaced "death note," infusing him with the power to kill merely by writing anyone's name on the page while picturing the person in his mind.

While it sounds beyond depressing, the 13-volume series was a hit in Japan, with the film being drawn from the first three installments. The studio is in a good position for the adaptation, as Warner Bros. Japan has already made three Japanese-language Death Note films.
