Live action Cowboy Bebop still in talks


Remember when we all heard about the possibility of a live action Cowboy Bebop? Seems cool, right? And then we heard that Keanu Reeves was up to play Spike Spiegel...ugh. Or at least that was the general reaction of the public, while I, personally, only think he might not fit the role due to his age at this point. I'm one of the few who, while I don't think Reeves is an amazing actor, also don't believe he's inherently terrible.

Reeves sat down with MTV and revealed that he's "been talking to people" and that while the opportunity for a live Cowboy Bebop may still exist, it simply hasn't happened yet. Yeah, I know, more of the same. I'm sure this title will be in development hell for a long time to come. And yes, that is a legitimate term. I speak movies.

Hit the jump to see Keanu's brief statement to MTV, and tell me, what do you think of this? First of all, do you even want a live action version? And if so, do you think Reeves can handle being Spike?

(Let's face it: this post is basically just a really good excuse to use sad Keanu pictures. So there you have it, post up your favorite sad Keanu pic!)
