By Alex Osborn Adam Wingard’s live-action Death Note movie may be headed to Netflix, as the popular streaming service is currently in “final negotiations” to secure distribution rights to the upcoming anime-based adaptation.

According to Variety, Lionsgate and STX were also in the running, but Netflix is “poised to come out on top” with a deal somewhere in the ballpark of $40-$50 million. The film is expected to begin production sometime this June.

Death Note originally started as a manga, which ran from 2003 to 2006, and tells the story of a high school student who discovers a notebook that grants him the ability to kill anyone by writing their name on its pages.

The series later received an anime adaptation, as well as a handful of Japanese live-action films.

The Guest director Adam Wingard is on board to helm the forthcoming American-minded adaptation, which stars Paper Towns’ Nat Wolff and The Leftovers’ Margaret Qualley.
