The IFMagazine.com entertainment website reports that film producer Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, A Scanner Darkly) is developing a live-action adaptation of Sunrise's Cowboy Bebop multi-genre action anime series for Fox. Stoff told the website that the project is "in the really early stages" since the parties "just signed it the other day." Shinichiro Watanabe's original anime follows the motley crew of the spaceship Bebop as it travels throughout the solar system in search of the next job. Stoff promised "a real degree of faithfulness," and added, “When I met with them in Japan, one of the first things that I brought up was the experience that we had on A Scanner Darkly, and how hard we worked to remain faithful to Philip K. Dick, and that was our big concern here.”

The anime distributor Bandai Entertainment and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block released the original 1998 television series in the United States, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the subsequent 2001 animated movie. The anime was also adapted into two separate manga series, and Tokyopop released both manga series in North America. A Bandai Entertainment representative was unable to publicly comment on this report.

This is not relevant to my interest...

Some people might actually like this incoming movie though.

I think a live-action Cowboy Bebop film could work. They better have Tank! in thier soundtrack though!

I think it'll turn out surprisingly well if they cast it right. I could see this being a better idea for a live action movie than Dragonball.

If John Woo directs it, it would go from shitty to awesome. I can't really think of anyone who could pull off Spike or Vicious, let alone Faye.

Thanks for posting that... Now I have to read EVEN MORE annoying ass little nerds whine about how America and Hollywood are ruining anime....
You guys need to stfu.. For real..
This movie can and WILL be badass..
That's the kind of attitude a TRUE fan would have...
Instead of instantly saying "this is going to suck" without even having a cast or crew, let alone footage..
And you guys always give the shittiest reasons as to, why these movies ruin the series..
Stupid mother fuckers...


sic transit gloria..
THE DRAGONBALL MOVIE IS GOING TO KICK ASS!!!!

If John Woo would direct it, it would own all other anime adaptations.
