yup i just found this on ANIME NEWS NETWORK

check it


The IFMagazine.com entertainment website reports that film producer Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, A Scanner Darkly) is developing a live-action adaptation of Sunrise's Cowboy Bebop multi-genre action anime series for Fox. Stoff told the website that the project is "in the really early stages" since the parties "just signed it the other day." Shinichiro Watanabe's original anime follows the motley crew of the spaceship Bebop as it travels throughout the solar system in search of the next job. Stoff promised "a real degree of faithfulness," and added, “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.”

The anime distributor Bandai Entertainment and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block released the original 1998 television series in the United States, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the subsequent 2001 animated movie. The anime was also adapted into two separate manga series, and Tokyopop released both manga series in North America. A Bandai Entertainment representative was unable to publicly comment on this report.

Thank you to Meghan Grant and Starks for the news tips.

HEY now... dont judge things before theyre even written... no one knows nothing about it and CMON! the matrix producer is producing it, so you know some big bucks is going into this movie... and expect Keanu reeves to play Spike heh heh...(matrix,a scanner darkly) j/k

its like the Dragon ball movie thats coming out, ive seen alot of bad comments being said about it and no ones even seen a damned trailer yet, i think a Live Action Cowboy Bebop will defenitly be worth $10.50(movie ticket price)..

PS: i think Big Production live action anime movies is gonna be the next big thing, like Comic book movies...

I agree about not completely knocking it yet, but I must admit that it scares me. Like my otaku brother says, "Some things were just never meant to be live action movies." I'll put it this way: if it does rock, I will be impressed beyond measure. Thanks for the news, by the way; I had no idea they planned to do this.

Today's live action isn't all that live action, especially science fiction live action. Half of the movies are CG, and thus animated. Cowboy Bebop has a change to be good. It is also one of the easier properties to translate into live action. There is nothing in the story that hasn't been done in live action cinema.

exactly... i mean seriously all the futuristic stuff in the anime can be done with computers and stuff(blue screens/green screens)... theres no magic or anything stupid like that, just gun battles which can be done... lets just hope the writers make it good!
