‘Cowboy Bebop’ Live-Action Series Remake in Development

Watching Cowboy Bebop soon won’t even require you to acknowledge you like anime. Variety reports that the seminal ’90s animated series is getting a live-action adaptation to rehash the story of Spike Spiegel and his intergalactic crew of bounty hunters. Details are still scarce, but Thor: The Dark World and Max Steel writer Christopher Yost is attached to pen the remake. While the project will surely be a tough sell to devotees of the anime, even the biggest skeptics can hopefully come to see at least one positive: seeing that Corgi running around in live-action is going to be cute as hell, yo.

    I want to give Yost the benefit of the doubt that his comic credentials overshadow those two garbage screenplays, but man, it sure would be easier to get excited if say Edgar Wright, Rian Johnson, Adam Wingard or Taika Waititi were involved somehow… but you’re on point about the Corgi action.
