COWBOY BEBOP Live Action Movie

Producer Erwin Stoff is working on developing the anime series COWBOY BEBOP as a live action movie.
“I’m developing COWBOY BEBOP for Fox, but doing it as a live-action film, so I’m working on that at the moment,” Stoff tells iF. “I’m really excited to be working on it, and it’s 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.”

COWBOY BEPOP is a Japenese animated series which followed bounty hunters, lead by Spike Spiegel in the year 2071. The series ran in the US on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block.
