Cobra the Space Pirate movie Alexandre Aja

Alexandre Aja spoke with Collider at TIFF about his new project, Horns which stars Daniel Radcliffe and during the course of the interview, revealed that he's interested in an adaptation of the anime classic, Cobra the Space Pirate. While talking about what he has coming down the pipeline, Aja says, "There is still my dream project, Cobra the Space Pirate, which is an adaptation of a very well known manga in Japan. I grew up reading and watching and I would really like to bring it to the big screen. But it's a very ambitious and expensive project." Aja admitted that it's going to be very difficult to get the film made adding, "It's going to be very hard but we are trying everything, we will make it. I always hear about visual effects getting cheaper but I always see visual effect[sic] getting more expensive. They get better for sure but cheaper, I don't think so. If you want to do a new kind of Star Wars, it's expensive. There are no shortcuts."
