"What?! Reeves? D:

T_T what have we done to deserve THIS?

Well... I guess its like others have said.... were just going to have to wait and see... maybe... it wont look as bad as Dragonball movie does right now...

I'm just afraid they'll take out one of the major characters like they did with Krillinin the Dragonball movie. What if there is no Ed, Faye or Jet!?

And I agree... Ein better not be some stupid little CG dog -_-' IF they even put him in. v.v

O_o and they better not make Ed a boy... I dont know why... but I have a feeling they might..."
Shakes at the fear of losing Ein Noooooooooooo

Amuck: If I were more of a conspiracy theorist, I'd suggest that DB:E and Keanu are vengeance for all of the loli smut that exists in the (global) otakudom.

I'm willing to give Reeves a chance on this. I'm not particularly concerned with the casting for Faye or Jet since I think their archetypes make them easy to cast for, but I'm worried about Ed. If they're going with the Red Eye + Spike's past plot, I'm half-hoping they axe Ed and Ein from the script completely to save everyone the grief of having to cast a super androgynous Ed and hunting down a suitable Welsh Corgi. I love the characters, but I'd rather not see them at all than see them butchered.

A part of me wishes that it were someone else cast for the titular role of Spike Spiegel. I mean, isn't there a relatively unknown actor out there just waiting for his "breakout role" (i.e. Hugh Jackman as "Wolverine")?

Still, the reality of Hollywood is that almost nothing ever gets moving without a "big name" making the push. Keanu Reeves attachment is one of the reasons this film adaptation is moving forward. It's also why live-action versions of Ghost in the Shell and Akira have drawn strong interest when names like Leonardo DiCaprio and Steven Spielberg are being tossed about.

I'm willing to give Reeves a chance. A teeny, tiny one. He's not a favorite of mine, but I don't loathe him either. Not nearly as much as some of his Hollywood peers. The easist way to make this film enjoyable is to surround Reeves with a strong cast.

And Edward is soooo going to be in this movie. It'll be interesting to see just who they cast for that role. I really hope they scour the agencies and the pools to find the right girl. I can already envision the INNANET FANDUMB meltdown that would follow the announcement of a boy being cast as Edward.

I think we can all agree Edward is a must for this movie, and I agree that they need to find someone new for him, I just hope reeve remembers his roots, Replacements, Speed he was a good actor then and all off a sudden he became wooden. Any way Transgojobot Sweet Icon.

Little_Sparrow: I don't think we all necessarily agree that-- Kiriska made a strong point that if they follow the Red Eye/Spike's past storyline, Ed and Ein would be unnecessary.

But if they are going for mass appeal over story, It would sadly make sense to have them in, I will hold my breathe until I know who the writers are.

I'm a little bit pissed off, but being a huge Cowboy Bebop fan, there's no doubt that I'll be watching it day one.

I sure damn hope they're going for story over mass appeal. Even amongst fans, I'd like to think that we have our heads on straight enough to want story over popular characters. x___x

Errr... Just look at the first Street Fighter movie and Mortal Kombat, these might be as lame of a story as this one

The fact that there are more and more anime to live action movies makes me fear for Evangelion.
