    it's already going to fail because of:

    *only 1 film instead of the originally planned 2 films

    *Rated PG-13 instead of Rated R

    *only 1 film at 2hrs&something in length

    *not set in Japan but a future New York

    *lead characters names changed

    *american actors not japanese actors

    Yeah, I have to agree. Most of those are insta-fails by themselves. Add Robert Pattinson and you have possibly the worst idea for anything ever.

    ...put a decidedly American spin on it and metaphorically snap it in half over your knee.

    Dude, there's only one now? Welp, that's the end of tha-
    :jawdropper: 
    Oh god no. The only thing bad about the original was it's length, this going to be awfu-
    :inquisiti 
    :( 
    :mad 

    God, Hollywood's anime adaptations are awful. Hell, a friend of mine (Avid anime fan) read my DBZ adaptation screenplay and said it was several times better than DB Evolution. It's strange that fan ideas are better than Hollywood's.

    As random guys on the internet as my witness, I pledge that if I ever get into Hollywood, I will make a Anime Adaptation so great!! That you will be begging me to make a sequel!!

    This is funny b/c they've changed so much that it's become just a complete ripoff with the originals name, I hope this and the live action bebop movies get canned or stuck in development hell.

    Agreed. Didn't know they were making a live action Cowboy Bebop movie. And with Keanu Reeves, no less. Wonderful, Hollywood. Just take a giant steaming crap on everything cool and call it a day, will ya?
