Cowboy Bebop (2019)

Recommended Posts

Yeah. Cowboy Bebop is the gold standard against which all anime is judged! This is a big NOOOOO!!! Especially after what they did with Death Note. Double big NOOOOO!!! The horror. The horror.

I'm looking forward to it.  Spaceships are always welcome on my television.  The leaks about the pilot script make it sound like a pretty faithful adaptation, so basically it's going to come down to casting.  For me, that's what will make it or break it.  

Anime is not my thing though.  I was a Firefly fan, so I only watched CB because of that connection.

And I watched Firefly because my daughter pitched it to me as live-action Cowboy Bebop!

The casting for Spike alone is almost an insurmountable task by itself, especially because the martial arts demands of the role shrink the available pool.

It's too bad the old casting for a live action Bebop never got off the ground because Keanu Reeves would have been a perfect Spike.

He really wanted the role, too. Unfortunately, he's about 55 now and a bit old for Spike. I can hardly wait to see who they pull for this version. <sarcasm/

He doesn't really look it. It would have been great back in the day. Although, John Wick is a fair trade, since I'd probably have ended up being disappointed in the movie.

They NEED to bring in Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts to do all the music for the soundtrack.

This is key!  The music was as much a character in the show as anyone.

While I loathe the whole idea for so many reasons, chief among them that imho no one can live up to Steven Blum's Spike, I do admit to thinking of a whole new audience being introduced to Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts as the only positive in a horrible idea.
