I rewatched Cowboy Bebop only recently. Hasn't aged as well as I thought it would, but still up there as a top quality show. Would love to see a live action version. If done properly could be amazing.

The series is a co-production between Netflix and Tomorrow Studios, with the latter company — a partnership between Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios — taking out the live-action pitch for the project last summer.

 

Midnight Radio's Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg (Disney's upcoming High Fidelity TV series, Netflix's late and great Everything Sucks, CBS' Zoo) will serve as showrunners and exec produce alongside Tomorrow Studios' Adelstein and Becky Clements.

 

Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki and Shin Sasaki of Sunrise Inc. — the studio behind the original anime series — will also exec produce alongside Tetsu Fujimura and Matthew Weinberg. 

 

Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) will pen the first episodes with Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The MiddleMan, The 100.)

Shinichiro Watanabe — who directed the original series — will serve as a consultant on the Netflix take.

They're a bit into production in New Zealand, but John Cho suffered a freak knee injury on set which requires surgery and extensive rehabilitation and production has been shut down for 7-9 months.

 

Also, they posted Ein earlier

Maybe they'll give Faye massive CGI eyes and cast white actors for 99% of the supporting roles.

 

 

 

Whilst this is a valid criticism of the film, Alita was surprisingly entertaining (if you could cope with the nightmarishly large eyes) and a decent first film to launch a series, but I get the feeling that it didn't do well enough. :( 

 

As for this, it's mildly depressing that they couldn't actually find an actual Japanese actor in the US to play Spike, but I have a feeling that criticism in that direction would result in Netflix saying "Well, it's anime and the future so Spike could be any nationality. We just went with colour-blind casting" and then I would be forced to put my foot through my laptop screen in rage. 

 

That said, if they get Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts involved, then I'll be all over the soundtrack if nothing else. Apropos of which:

It’s not really a valid criticism as whilst the manga was written in Japan it’s set in America, and Alita is Martian, with the Martian population being canonically descended from Germans. 
 

Also if you liked the movie you should read the manga, it’s the same story but better in every way.
