As far as I can tell, they seem to be keeping the plot a secret but from all that I gather, they want to emphasize that this is not Death Note. This is a story about L and his eccentricities as a master of brain games and a bit of a recluse. They want to focus on the idea of the suspense action genre while giving a sort of insiders view of L that the other movies didn't quite reach. This should be able to be seen without previously seeing Death Note. If I can find out more, I will. All for the love of Death Note.^_-

If anyone else can find out anything, please contribute.
