Netflix Planning Live Action Cowboy Bebop Series
It should be clear by now – Netflix loves anime. And they show their love for it either by carrying many popular movies and series, but also through adaptations. Granted, the live action adaptations tend to be hit and miss *cough*DeathNote*cough*, but for better or worse, they’re still trying. Case in point, Variety reports that Netflix is adapting the iconic 1998 anime series, Cowboy Bebop, into a 10 episode live action series.
The adaptation is being produced by Tomorrow Studios, which is also in charge of a previously announced One Piece live-action Hollywood film. As a vote of confidence, original TV anime creator and director Shinichiro Watanabe is on hand as creative consultant. Chris Yost, screenplay writer for Thor: The Dark World (2013) and Thor: Ragnarok (2017), will be penning the first of ten episodes.
