Neo Goes Bebop

Not content with ruining The Day The Earth Stood Still, Keanu Reeves has set his sights on another sci-fi classic, signing up for the live-action remake of classic anime Cowboy Bebop. Is nothing sacred?

Variety reports that Reeves will take the role of Spike Spiegel, one of the two leads in the series that followed the bounty hunter crew of the spaceship Bebop through space in the year 2071. The movie adaptation will be written by Peter Craig, and produced by Reeves' Day The Earth Stood Still producer Erwin Stoff for the same studio, 20th Century Fox.
