The film will star actor Sousuke Ikematsu, who will be playing L’s successor, Ryuuzaki, who is also a master detective and he is related to the great detective himself. He is joined by Masahiro Higashide, who plays Tsukuru Mishima, an investigator in the newly-formed “Death Note Unit,” and Masaki Suda, who plays Yuugi Shion, a cyber terrorist who idolizes Kira and uses his skills to find the six Death Notes.

    It will also star AKB48 Idol, Rina Kawaei, as one of the six Death Note users, and this will be the idol’s darkest roles yet, as her character, Sakura Aoi, is an indiscriminate killer when using her Death Note.
