Current Status Of The Live-Action COWBOY BEBOP Movie And Chances Of New Anime Series

Speaking at the MCM London Comic Con, Cowboy Bebop creator Shinichiro Watanabe updates the status of the live-action Cowboy Bebop movie and the chance that he continues the Cowboy Bebop anime series.

While attending the MCM London Comic Con, celebrated Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy creator Shinichiro Watanabe, updated the status of the live-action Cowboy Bebop movie currently in development at 20th Century Fox. Back in 2011, progress on the film came to a halt and then-attached Spike Spiegel actor Keanu Reeves said the project was dead and that he was too old to play Spike. With that development happening over three-years ago, perhaps the project is finally prepared to move forward in the wake of the success of Edge of Tomorrow? Here's what Shinichiro has to say on the live-action Bebop movie---

(translated)"I'm afraid I don't know what they're thinking in Hollywood. Apparently the project hasn't come to a stop but I don't know how it's going to progress from here on. I hear that there are a lot of "Hollywood" problems."

So the live-action Cowboy Bebop movie isn't dead yet, more like, it's in a non-responsive, vegetable state. Moving on the possibility that the Cowboy Bebop anime could continue on in some way, Shinichiro shared---

(translated)"As I always say, I have no plans to [continue the Cowboy Bebop anime] at the moment. If I ever were to make more Cowboy Bebop, [it] would be because I thought I could do better [than] last time. If I feel that way, I might make more but I don't know when that would happen."
