The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Harry is done now~
In the most interesting casting choice of the Netflix adaptation of the manga Death Note, Willem Dafoe will get to voice Ryuk the Shinigami. And you know what? That quite fitting as far as voice is concerned. But I do wonder how they will adapt Shinigami (aka gods of death) in general, and Ryuk in particular, since that’s the one aspect of the manga that is truly Japanese. Oh well, guess I will wait for 2017 and see for myself.

It’s been less than a week since Harry Potter and the Cursed Child screenplay was released and the first numbers showed it’s already breaking records. It has become the fastest selling book of the decade in the UK. Of course, that’s because Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released that decade. I mean, there have already been bought 680,000 copies in the first three days of its release. But the final novel in the Harry Potter saga sold 1.8 million copies in its launch week back in July 2007. Damn, I feel old. That said, I am glad Harry Potter and the Cursed Child beat Fifty Shades of Grey which sold 664,478 in a single week in 2012. The book ain’t doing too shaby in North America, with over 2 million copies in just two days. Of course, it doesn’t touch the 8.3 million copies Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows sold in 24 hours over there. But still, not bad, J.K. Rowling (and two other dudes).
Talking about Harry Potter related things, Warner Bros. announced that Fantastic Beast and Where to Find them sequel has a release date: November 16, 2018.
And for something different, some news surrounding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Seems Tony Gilroy, uncredited writer for the upcoming film, will supervise Rogue One‘s post production, with “input” from director Gareth Edwards, who will remain as “the face” of the film. Well, it’s not the first time this has happened between the two men, Gilroy also helped Edwards with Godzilla for Warner Bros. Guess the drama from Rogue One never ends, and I just want a good damn movie, which is at the same time different from the other regular Star Wars movies. Is it too much to ask, Disney?!
