The End is Near: Keanu Wants Cowboy Bebop Role





Apparently Keanu Reeves wants to play Spike Spielgel in a live action adaptation of the best anime series of all time – Cowboy Bebop.


The flick is currently being put together by Erwin Stoff, a producer who has spent the last two decades working almost exclusively on Reeves projects, and recently set the film up at 20th Century Fox. “We’ve got the rights, we’ve got a writer,” Keanu explained. “He’s putting together a scene outline.”

Reeves revealed that this outline for the flick is currently focusing on the origins of the fictional “Bebop” drug developed by the military, which provides its users with a brief surge of superhuman reflexes and awareness. “We’re taking the Red Eye [story], the beginning part of the series,” he explained, “and then we’ll deal with the end of the series. We’re trying to figure out [the time frame]. We’re looking at the story right now.”

Does that mean Megan Fox would be Faye Valentine?  Maybe they can get Bruce Willis to play Jet.  Oh!  And that creepy Dakota Fanning can play Edward.  And Benji as Ein.  Yeah, this is shaping up to be the best movie ever.  EVER!

Does no one remember Constantine?
