Aggressively pursuing the license... but no official word on their distribution plans.

ANN has confirmed rumors (first posted on Anime on DVD) that Columbia Tristar is interested in purchasing the North American rights for Cowboy Bebop: Knocking on Heaven's Door.

Several employees within Columbia's licensing and legal departments have confirmed to us that the company is aggressively pursuing the license and has a rough draft of the contract already on the table. They are hoping to sign a contract as soon as possible.

At this point no one we spoke to was able to tell us what their plans for the movie were, but it's hard to imagine Columbia Tristar licensing the movie for any reason other than a theatrical release.

ANN is still waiting for an official quote from their publicity and marketing staff, which may not be available as long as the contract remains unsigned.
