(Original Post) Netflix has officially rolled out some pretty cool looking key art for its live action adaptation of the ever popular Anime Cowboy Beebop. The series which will debut on November 19th stars John Cho who plays Spike Spiegel, the leader of a misfit crew of bounty hunters. The series has had a long and winding road to completion but the end is in sight with a release date and poster.
Cho was injured while filming the long awaited series which put production back seven to nine months. Filming finally wrapped in March of this year.
First look images also debuted last month which I unfortunately didn’t post right away but you can check them all out featuring the cast in various scenes from the series and it does look authentic to the source material.
The official synopsis reads:
I was never a real fan of the original Anime but I’m going to check this out and see if it sparks my interest for it again. I gravitated towards the martial arts themed titles like Street Fighter but Sci-Fi was a close second when I was a kid.
With the official release date set and the new poster out, expect the trailer at any time. Keep it locked and loaded right here!
