Cowboy Bebop Live Action Movie 2016 Progress

Cowboy bebop

The most surprising news for me today was that Cowboy bebop live action movie production is on-going, unless and until i read a certain post that gave progress report of the Movie. As far as i remember Cowboy Bebop and Naruto were the two Anime series and Manga which made a lot of impact in US viewers and readers and rest other fans. So as far as the popularity of these two series is concerned, I’ve no doubt about their popularity but it was announced that Naruto is getting live action movie under the supervision of Lionsgate. But i wasn’t aware of the news that we will soon see Cowboy bebop live action.

According to the report given by “” states that “Keanu Reeves” the former lead of Matrix Movie is one of the candidate for the role of the Main character “Spike Speigel” and given his experience in the “Sci-Fi” genre he seems to be the right choice for the role.

It also mentions that according to the latest news report given by “Movie News Guide” Keanu Reeves himself mentioned that he wished and hoped to work in the movie as the lead actor in the role of Main Character Spike Speigel but according to him he would be too old to play the role of our beloved Spike Speigel. More over he has also seen the script of the cowboy bebop live action movie and in fact praised it as an “Amazing srcipt” but also stated that the film would be too expensive to make.
Although, since the Movie is expensive to make, it seems studio is hesitating to progress the movie production further. So if Ghost in the Shell movie, the another American live action movie starring none other than over beloved Natasha Romanoff a.k.a Scarlet  Johansson hit the theaters in 2017 and became a big hit then the studio would be convinced the the Anime is worthy of live action adaptation even if its expensive.

Since Cowboy Bebop, Naruto and Ghost in the shell are all “Cult Anime” and are no doubt a lot popular, fans would like to see a Live Action adaptation. The thing is they should not screw up the entire story line like Dragon Ball Evolution.

Cowboy Bebop Synopsis

The year 2071 A.D. That future is now. Driven out of their terrestrial eden, humanity chose the stars as the final frontier. With the section-by-section collapse of the former nations a mixed jumble of races and peoples came. They spread to the stars, taking with them the now confused concepts of freedom, violence, illegality and love, where new rules and a new generation of outlaws came into being. People referred to them as Cowboys.



Meet Spike and Jet, a drifter and a retired cyborg cop who have started a bounty hunting operation. In the converted ship The Bebop, Spike and Jet search the galaxy for criminals with bounties on their heads. They meet a lot of unusual characters, including the unusually intelligent dog, Ein, and the voluptuous and vexing femme fatale, Faye Valentine.
