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

This sounded great until I heard Reeve's name.  My prediction is they will turn Jet into a black guy so that it becomes more PC for the masses..

I sense they will make Edward a boy and screw it up somehow.

Keanu is in his 40's now, closer to Jet's age, Spike is in his mid to late 20's.  Spike's old enough to have seen action, but young enough to still be brash.
I don't see how this can work as far as character development.

Fair enough, but hollywood always screws up on what ever's not hollywood. I mean Dragonball Z was one of the main things i grew up to, and, look at the  moive...It looks terrible... I swear anime will never make it into "live-action" or a western kind of preduction over the animated cartoon and western will never make it to anime. It's like puting shrimp in choclate, two completly awesome things but they taste better on a diffrent course.

I dont think thats fait,, I mean there is loads of Mangas that would make awesome movies, Bebop being one of them. What Anime needs is a good studio to take the reins and say enough and come up with a good script and actors, I mean look at comic movies. I think it also falls on the studio to step up and say right lets do this justice and not for a quick buck. Batman, Ironman and even the new hulk where all good to the comic series so why cant anime have the same drive as comics!

I'm waiting on this one to see... and I'll pay to see it in a theater.  I want to see the world of Bebop LIVE.  I think they'll have the budget and artistic know how to do it.  I'm frightened for Reeves as Spike, but he is a dedicated actor so HOPEFULLY he will make it happen.  If not I can just look at all the costumes and special effects and then go back to watching the anime.  Dubbed. :)  I love Steve Blum.

As for who will play Ed?  If this was a few years earlier Dakota Fanning has the depth as an acctress to do it.  But now? NO idea.  They had better not make Ein CG.  A real dog(s) could be trained to do that.  (Though then it'll ruin the Welsh Corgi breed as "everyone" will want one.)

For Faye?  Salma Hayak would be a good choice... or Jessica Alba.  She'd be great. (Not so sure about Fantastic 4, but Dark Angel was amazing.)

Jett Black?  He better be in the movie!  Who would rein Spike in and make peppers and beef, with no beef?  He keeps the crew of the Bebop somehat together.

The end of days is nigh....

Anyways, Ein and Ed are the wildcard characters.  If they can nail those two the rest of the movie will be great. 

Salma as Faye = Yummy!

This is almost as big a fail as the DBZ live action.
