I imagine it's going to be Firefly 2.0

I mean, that show was already very Bebop-esque.

Makes sense. After all, my favourite episodes are not about the central plot about Vicious but the stand alone stories, which don't work in a film. Condensing everything into two and a half hours just don't work.

Wasn't Firefly inspired by Outlaw Star? Yes, OS, that anime that the Americans liked to compare with Bebop coz both space adventures aired in Toonami even though they're two different things especially the tone. IIRC FF even ripped off the "mysterious girl in the suitcase" from OS.

Firefly had elements of OS, but the story structure and the overall feel was a lot more like Bebop.

You've probably seen this already: Netflix will produce the live action series.

Well, just in time for the "a Netflix adaptation" memes.

^ Is Keanu Reeves still interested in playing Spike? He's once again a big star now due his John Wick movies which are practically one of the biggest action movie franchises today that's not superhero or comic property.

It would be criminal if they don't get Keanu Reeves on board for that project. The guy is a big anime fan himself, and he's definitely familiar with Cowboy Bebop.

That being said, it would be fun to see Keanu! Spike as a laid back version of John Wick with the same martial arts and gunslinging skills.

^ It's a damn shame that a Singaporean was not considered for the role of Faye Valentine but, oh well, it is a diverse cast befitting the eclectic nature of both the story and its iconic characters. So, for now, I'm cautiously hopeful.


Netflix's Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Series Casts John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda, Alex Hassell

Los Angeles (April 5, 2019): Netflix has announced the cast of its 10-episode live-action series adaptation of the 1998 television anime Cowboy Bebop. The announcement describes the series as a "TV drama".

Entertainment news website Deadline also reported that Alex Garcia Lopez (The Witcher, Daredevil, The Punisher) will direct the first two episodes.

Entertainment news magazine Variety noted in November that the series has been in the works since 2017. Netflix did not announce a release date for the series.

They're still confused about Ed casting. Figures.

Ed is a really difficult character to pull off in live-action because she's practically a cartoon character in plenty of her screen-time. To properly translate her, they need to find a young and petite actress who is gifted with the comedic talents that is a perfect combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. Good luck trying to find such genius performer.
