Cowboy Bebop rewrite

Wow, I almost forgot that this Keanu Reeves COWBOY BEBOP randomfest even existed, but I was remined of that fact when he sat down with MTV to talk about his other movie, THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE. As it turns out, the project was actually TOO good, and now has to be rewritten.

"There's a draft of the script, but the writer did such a great job [that] in order to make the movie, you would need half a billion dollars… So the studio went, 'This movie is fantastic and it would cost half a billion dollars," laughed Reeves, "so he's doing a rewrite."

Did he just make that half a billion dollars joke twice in under six seconds? The script he’s referring to is written by Peter Craig who promised to be “extremely faithful” to the source material. I guess he must have had the entire thing like literally shooting in space or something. Keanu continues, talking about just how faithful it will be:

"Everyone is in there," said Reeves. "The only challenge was to make a satisfying western narrative out of the kind of storytelling that happens," he added. "There's a great draft, so we're just trying to pull it back a little bit now."

Sure, whatever, take your time. I don’t think anyone’s in any sort of crazy rush to see this thing, and if I want a space western in the meantime, I’ll just pull out my “Firefly” DVD box set.

Extra Tidbit: He does look the part, I'll give him that.
