Fujiwara commented that he was thankful for being able to do the movie 10 years together with Matsuyama at such a young age of 23 years old and remembers the warm response from people in Japan and overseas. With a new storyline and characters, he feels that the new movie will be as interesting as the previous movies. The producer Sato Takahiro revealed that he had told Fujiwara about the new movie which led the latter to murmur that he would like to play Yagami Light again. However, since Light was already supposed to be dead in the last movie, they went through a few scenarios to see how they could get him to be "revived" without changing any rules in the Death Note. As for how this happens, viewers will only be able to find out after watching the new movie.
Prior to the movie's screening on the 29th, there will be a drama SP "Death Note Gyakushuu no Tensai" which describes the battle between Light and L from the viewpoints of Mishima (Higashide Masahiro) and Ryuuzaki (Ikematsu Sousuke) that will be shown at 9pm on 28 October.
