NOOOO! Say it ain't so!
I like Keanu Reeves in some things but hot a Spike. He's just not cool enough. Why can't they ever cast these things properly?

Oh HEEEEEELLLLLL NO.

This could be as bad as that Dragonball trainwreck coming out this year (or the high suckage odds of the Avatar Movie).

Why is Hollywood so unkind to Anime?

Cowboy Bebop was less anime and more animated film noir.

Except of course for Fay, she was pure anime construction. Though I think Angelina Jolie could pull it off.

It's a symptom of NorAm's general view of animation in general --namely that it's for children and needs to be made "hipper and more mature" by making it live-action, which is more "real."

The only exceptions are CG animation, which are still for children, but are considered to be "better" than "old-fashioned" cell-animation.

Screw 'em. We've still got our DVDs.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Yet another film I have no interest in seeing. I'll just rewatch my dvds instead.

hollywood is mean to anime because its out of ideas, so its resorting to converting stories that have already been made from one form to another ><

I think they should have cast a relitively unknown or up and coming for Spike (Keanu is Neo to so many), then had someone with some movie history in for Jet and Faye to ground said up and coming and level it out. Dunno about Ed though.... Ein should be interesting.

Word. Particularly towards CG animation and how it is regarded higher than 2d. As a 2D Animation major I get that alot. America on a cinematic level thinks the art form (it's art, people) has gone the way of Pong and everything should look Pixar. I respect 3d, and I love what CG is doing in the way of live action (I will watch Transformers just for the all the CGporn lol). But for me 2d is where its at.

I don't have a huge problem with Anime or cartoons being made into live action because we are at a point in the movie industry where special effects can capture so much that great 2d as has already put out. Plus if it's executed correctly it can draw a new generation of fans in. But I seriously have a problem with the approach that has been taken with the ones that are being turned into live action that are geared towards young adults/adults. Not all Anime could be properly transitioned into live action, but there's a few that have the potential to be epic. What kills it is it seems all of these directors and writers honestly stray from the material itself and don't play it true to the original in many ways (including casting a skinny ass white boy to play a Sayan who never went to high school). I think if Anime was taken with as much care as they do with the comic francises (and even to an extent Harry) the product would be something that fans would be pleased with.

That said I want a Thundercats movie and Zoids or Gundam..... my god the CG for Zoids or Gundam *drools*

I still don't think a live-action version of Bebop is necessary, but if I was doing it (and going with American actors) here's who I would cast.

Spike - Lucas Black
Faye - Adrianne Palicki
Jet - Adam Baldwin
Ed - Eliza Bennett

SUIWAY


It's kinda funny, I admit that I go to see lots of movies purely because of who's in them (Reeves and Edward Norton are two of em) but as much as I like Reeves, he definitely isn't the best choice.

1. WTF?
2. 2011?
3. WTF?
4. Keanu has about as much cool as a brick.
5. WTF?
6. I hope someone was kidding about Jolie
7. WTF?
8. I bet they will strip all of the moral ambiguity from the story and make it an epic battle of a few commoner heroes who overthrow a well spoken dark lord.
9. WTF?
10. This is going to suck, I can just tell. Like, I'm not against the idea of live action, but screw it, just let the japanese do it themselves.

I can say without the shadow of a doubt that Cowboy Bebop is my favorite anime series.

I can also say that I would much prefer just about ANYONE besides #$*%ing NEO!!! He's just not hipster enough for that role - Spike is laid back and just plain cool... Keanu is laid back and boring...

I'm so sad now...

I reiterate my disgust. Keanu Reeves as Spike is just plain wrong.

That being said, I could actually see this working as a live action film. Just not one for kids. I'm not terribly sanguine about what will come out of Hollywood, but it could work. My personal pick for Spike would be Micheal Weatherly (Dark Angel, NCIS).

And as to Hollywood raping adaptations, It's not just anime that gets that treatment. High fantasy and fairytales (both new and old) have been stuck with the defenition of "Family Films" and children's fare for ages. Every now and then, you get a "Lord of the Rings" that aims at an older audience but mostly you get Eragons and Harry Potters and neutered Disney adaptaions. Don't even get me started on "Stardust". Did they even read the book to the end?
