From AICN:

Anime News Network points out that IF Magazine has learned that producer Erwin Stoff is developing an adaptation of one of America's favorite anime series.... Cowboy Bebop.

Im developing COWBOY BEBOP for Fox, but doing it as a live-action film, so Im working on that at the moment, Stoff tells iF. Im really excited to be working on it, and its in the really early stages. We just signed it the other day.

I have such an enormous admiration for its creators, that our first and foremost concern is going to be a real degree of faithfulness to the tone of the movie, to the mix of genres, and so on and so forth, he says. 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.


Well, this is pointless.

Well, I'll only watch it if the on-screen actors are dubbed over by the anime VAs.

Anime and video games don't translate well, but CB might actually be able to pull it off (or at least achieve mediocrity.)

Looking forward to this.

Not expecting great things, but as long as there are pretty good things, I'll be happy.

I knew Dragon Ball movie would be a slippery slope. I just didn't know how slippery.

Anime to real life adaptations are just not needed.

Once Akira and GITS were on the table, all bets were off, unfortunately.

Haven't people learned from that atrocious (to put it kindly) live action Fist of the North Star movie?

Already announced, but then that was years ago and I've heard little since.

Honestly? In the right hands this would be one that can actually work. I can definitely see Bebop being faithful conveyed in live action, while I can't say the same about most other anime. Only problem is that the track record for things like this is not favorable.

I feel the same, Eus. Out of all the anime I've seen, Cowboy Bebop is one of the few I can see being effectively done as a live action film.

The rumour is Keanu Reeves for Spike.

If it comes to pass, I will personally set that casting director on fire.

Why do people get so worked up over things like this?  Will the Anime suddenly suck because the movie didn't turn out well?  Honestly in the end the Anime will still be good so it isn't too big a deal if this movie flops.  It's not even like anyone has to go and watch the movie.  

I also think that this could work and really could see Keanu as a good call for Spike.
