I saw that too on MU. I'm not sure whether to be hopeful or disgusted by the announcement. I think more Death Note would be cool, whatever the form it is in. But, the release's relation to the live-action films makes me a little suspicious it will turn out like that half chapter in Bleach that ended up being pure promotion for the movie.
^ I dont think the two will have much to do with eachother, the live action movie is something about L isnt it? That would mean it would have to take place before or durring death-note. The oneshot has to do with after the manga ends. Unless they're talking about Near in the live action movie? idk i'm not really too informed on the subject...
Near is on the cover of the issue:
Is it just a coincidence, or does he look a good bit older?
^ it does take place 3 years after the last chapter
