Last month word started circulating around that 20th Century Fox was finally making it happen, and now the guys over at FirstShowing.net claim to know who is starring in it.
Their source tells them that Keanu Reeves is attached to play the lead in the Cowboy Bebop movie, as a character named Spike. What’s more he’s been attached to the project for more than 8 months. That’s either good or bad, depending on how you look at it. I tend to look at it as bad, since normally a studio who is serious about making a movie like this would run right out and announce a big casting score like that. Fox meanwhile, still hasn’t even officially announced that they’re making the movie, much less that they have Keanu Reeves starring in it.
Don`t you know what Cowboy Bebop is? Is an anime series, for more detail Wikipedia says:
“In the year 2071 AD, the crew of the spaceship Bebop travel the solar system trying to apprehend bounties. Nation-states have collapsed, and various races and peoples live throughout the solar system. In the slang of the era, “Cowboys” are bounty hunters. Most episodes revolve around a specific bounty, but the show often shares its focus with the pasts each of the four main characters and of more general past events, which are revealed and brought together as the series progresses.”
