Yoko Kanno to Score Live Action COWBOY BEBOP movie
Netflix has announced during its Geeked Week livestream earlier today that its live-action adaptation of Sunrise’s COWBOY BEBOP anime will premiere this fall and confirmed that Japanese composer Yoko Kanno (composer of the COWBOY BEBOP anime, as well as such notable animes as MACROSS PLUS, THE VISION OF ESCAFLOWNE, GHOST IN THE SHELL: STAND ALONE COMPLEX, WOLF’S RAIN) will score the new series. Kanno is known for having scored all episodes of the ‘90s anime series, as well as 2001’s COWBOY BEBOP: THE MOVIE.
The show’s teaser video features the live-action cast and the anime’s opening theme song “Tank!” by the Seatbelts (watch the video here on twitter).
The science fiction drama, based on Hajime Yatate’s anime series and starring John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda, Alex Hassell, and Elena Satine, is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine, and Radical Ed, a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll even save the world…for the right price.
Netflix will premiere COWBOY BEBOP this fall.
