Cowboy Bebop Live Action Cast

by Uiviee | created - 29 Mar 2017 | updated - 10 months ago | Public

  • Don't whitewash
  • The corgi should be in it!

  • Have jazz, have a smooth and classic soundtrack and bgm

  • Every episode should always end with "See you Space Cowboy"!

  • It's set in the future but should not be sleek and bland, it needs to be gritty
  • Hong Kong inspired setting.

  • The characters should be the way they are like the original.
Spike- laidback, confident, standoffish and charismatic. Effortlessly cool when fighting, but when he isn't fighting, he is sluggish. He always has his hands on his pocket, and has a hunched posture. Jet- patient and reliable, the mom of the group despite his appearance Faye- arrogant, sarcastic, cheeky, opportunistic, and lots of sex appeal. Ed- happy-go-lucky, carefree, quirky, resourceful, goofy, a eccentric genius and androgynous/tomboy appearance.

  • Retain the characters relationships
Jet being a mom to Spike Spike & Faye love and hate relationship the general aloof and tsundere-esque dynamic of the cast (they pretend they don't care about each other but deep down, they care). Spike & Julia relationship, the concept of Spike being in love with the idea of her and not in love of her, and him not being able to let her go

  • Fluid fighting choreography, and no shaky camera please (take notes from hong kong cinema).

  • It should retain the tone of the original, it should not become darker and edgy, it should not become silly and awkward, it should be engaging and charismatic like the original

  • the original has this somber tone to it, and I don't know if that's really necessary to keep. I think the show should at least feel like a mature show, a mature show that's effortlessly cool.
