On April 4th, the makers of the upcoming Japanese live-action Death Note 2016 film gave us a small peek into what was to be expected. They tweeted two stills of actor Masaki Suda as Yūgi Shion- cyber terrorist Shien - via the official twitter of Death Note.
The film is a sequel to the previous Japanese live-action films, that were adapted from the supernatural suspense manga. In the manga, Light Yagami finds a notebook outside his school, which holds the power to kill people whose names are written inside.
