We haven't heard anything from the live-action "Cowboy Bebop" movie front in a while, so when MTV News had the chance to interview Keanu Reeves during a press event for "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee" (his recent film with Robin Wright Penn), they made sure to ask about the adaptation of the popular anime.
"Cowboy Bebop" is the successful 1998 anime directed by Shinichiro Watanabe. Telling the stories of four space cowboys of dubious backgrounds and motivations, the anime made a killing on American television with its stylish take-offs of classic films, music, and film noir. Reeves will be playing the main character Spike Spiegel in the film.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
