The Cowboy Bebop Script Is Too Good it Needs to be Rewritten
Too bad when something too good can't materialize. This is exactly what's happening with Cowboy Bebop, Keanu Reeves' supposed-to-be biggest project after The Matrix series.
Cowboy Bebop is about a space traveling group of friends which Spike Spiegel, played by Reeves, is the leader. Being based on the animation flick, writer Peter Craig had sworn to made a script that's not different from what anime fans have seen on TV.
The problem is, making a live-action film from animation is not that easy - especially with all the props, the backgrounds, and the CG's needed. All in all, Peter Craig's script was perfect it costs half a billion to produce!
So right now, Craig is doing a rewrite so as not to bankrupt the producers and still give justice to the film. Now all anime fans should understand why their beloved show on TV is rarely the exact copy of what they see in the film.
