Netflix series Death Note picks up Keith Stanfield

Keith Stanfield, who you might remember as Snoop Dogg in Straight Outta Compton, will co-star with Nat Wolff in Death Note for Netflix.

Adam Wingard will write and direct the show which is an adaptation of the Japanese manga series.

There is no word on who Stanfield will play yet.

Death Note revolves around a student (Wolfe) who finds a haunted note book that allows him to kill anyone simply by writing their name.

Netflix recently acquired the project, after Warner Bros.’ rights expired, and plans to start shooting this summer.
