Keanu Reeves Confirmed for "Cowboy Bebop"

Posted: January 16th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Keanu Reeves Confirmed for "Cowboy Bebop"Submit Comment
We heard about this before, but it is now confirmed by THR that Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) will star in the upcoming 20th Century Fox's big screen adaptation of the Japanese anime TV series "Cowboy Bebop."

One of the big titles in anime, "Bebop" is set in a time where "astral gates" make interstellar travel possible. Humanity, decimated by a lunar explosion resulting from a gate accident, spread out across the solar system, as did crime, which gave rise to the use of bounty hunters.

Reeves would play Spike Spiegel, a bounty hunter and former member of a crime syndicate. Spiegel, along with Jet Black, a fellow bounty hunter and former cop, are the two pilots of the spaceship Bebop.

Peter Craig is writing the script.

Can't they find someone who can act, rather than settling on the first c*ck-asian dude that mirrors the Westernized characters found in anime? Keanu can't act. When will people realize this fact? He stinks. He does well playing either beach bums or robots, Vulcans or other aliens. He plays well the role of something that came from a computer, not characters with emotional depth. And the writer? Show the hell is he? Hasn't written anything. Looks like a case of Hollywood nepotism.

Terrible f*cking casting choice.

The better not mess this up. This is probably the best anime.

"sad...i was hoping for adrien brody but oh well..." That's damned good suggestion. He looks the part, except for the nose thing, AND he can act. Too bad, he's not Hollywoodish enough. He stars in smart movies.

Just because the writer is not wellknown doesn't mean he can't write a descent skript. NEWS FLASH: There are a LOT of talented people out there just waiting to get their big break.

Spike has way too much sarcasm and smart-assed-ness to be protrayed by stiff ass Reeves. Hell Christopher Reeves moved better when he was wheelchair bound than Keanu ever could. Plus KR's too old.

I never said an unknonw couldn't write a good script, but I think it's obvious and fair to say that because this guy doesn't have any other body of work to judge, we have to accept the possibility, a possibility that occurs rather often, he isn't quite up to snuff to the task of adapting properly one of the best animes ever to live action.

Don't worry guys, Fox knows what they're doing when it comes to anime......(Dragon ball). Did anyone believe me? Didn't think so. Spike will probably have red hair and a wooden leg. I HATE Fox!
