Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next ) has signed on to direct Warner Bros.’ thriller Death Note, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Adapted from a horror manga, Death Note follows a student who finds a supernatural notebook with the power to kill anyone whose name is written in it. The student decides to rid the world of anyone he deems evil, igniting a cat-and-mouse game between him and a withdrawn police officer. It was adapted in Japan in 2006, followed by a sequel two years later.

Roy Lee, Jason Hoffs and Masi Oka are producing the thriller, with Doug Davison and Brian Witten executive producing. Niija Kuykendall and Nik Mavinkurve will oversee for the studio.
