Live Action Cowboy Bebop!? WTF!?

There have been two live action versions of anime on Netflix thus far.  The first, Death Note, wasn’t terribly good.

Then there was FullMetal Alchemist, which also wasn’t particularly memorable.

Now there’s talk of an adaptation of 1998’s Cowboy Bebop, and while it’s not the best anime ever made–that honor goes to Samurai Champloo–it certainly ranks among the highest regarded.

And I’m not at all optimistic that they’re going to do well by it.  I remember that there was talk that Keanu Reeves would be starring in a movie based on the anime, but like most rumors that pretty much went nowhere.
