Cowboy Bebop - John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda & Alex Hassell to Star in Netflix Series



JOHN CHO, MUSTAFA SHAKIR, DANIELLA PINEDA AND ALEX HASSELL JOIN CAST OF "COWBOY BEBOP," THE ALL-NEW LIVE ACTION SERIES BASED ON THE JAPANESE ORIGINAL ANIMATED SERIES

ALEX GARCIA LOPEZ TO DIRECT FIRST INSTALLMENTS

Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of 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.

Alex Garcia Lopez (The Witcher; Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's The Punisher; Utopia) will direct the first two episodes.

The following cast are confirmed. Meanwhile, Radical Ed is hacking in, but not cast just yet. Plus more cast to be announced.

JOHN CHO (Star Trek, Searching) as Spike Spiegel

Spike Spiegel is an impossibly cool "cowboy" (bounty hunter) with a deadly smile, a wry wit, and style to spare. He travels the solar system with his ex-cop partner, Jet, pursuing the future's most dangerous bounties with a combination of charm, charisma -- and deadly Jeet Kune Do.

MUSTAFA SHAKIR (Marvel's Luke Cage) as Jet Black

Jet Black was one of the few honest cops in the solar system before an ultimate betrayal robbed him of all that he loved, forcing him into a vagabond life of hunting bounties to put food on the table. Jet is an inveterate jazz enthusiast and Captain of the Bebop.

DANIELLA PINEDA (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom; What/If) as Faye Valentine

Faye Valentine is a bold, brash and unpredictable bounty hunter. Suffering from amnesia after years of being cryogenically frozen, Faye does whatever it takes to survive. Whether she's lying, stealing, or just being a thorn in Spike and Jet's side.

ALEX HASSELL (The Red Sea Diving Resort; Suburbicon) as Vicious

A man who thoroughly enjoys a good kill, Vicious is the Syndicate's most notorious hitman. He's also Spike Spiegel's ex-partner and arch-enemy.

Episodes: 10

Co-Production: Netflix and Tomorrow Studios (a partnership between Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios). Netflix will handle physical production.

Showrunners / Executive Producers: Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio (Limetown, High Fidelity, Knightfall)

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
