Slater also wrote scripts for two films that were not a critical and public success: the last Fantastic Four and the Netflix adaptation of Death Note. In both cases, however, he claims that the original texts were heavily modified up to the filmed version.

So far, there is no information about the return of the cast of the last film or director Simon McQuoid. There is also no information about the return of the co-writer of the previous feature, Greg Russo, who even had already detailed some plans for a possible sequel. The studio has also not confirmed a premiere window.
