Dear god, please don't let Keanu play Spike.

If they go by name and not actors that will fit the role better, of course this would cost half billion. Damn I hate matrix... and now this...

So, what I'm getting is that they're trying to spend LESS on this movie.

Great.

Could this have any more strikes against it?

The only thing I can say is don't screw this up. Keep it as close as the Anime as you possibly can.

They probably were reminded of the production costs of DB:E and said, "er... we don't want to lose 4 times that much."

It seems like they are making an honest effort to keep this as close to the spirit of the original as they can. Of course, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. :Z

We'll see it if it ever surfaces.

Keeping the budget down should be pretty easy. The real killer will be making it to have a more Western narrative.

It may end up being better for mankind if this movie was to never surface.

If it's such a great writing as they said. Maybe the writer should just come up with some original ideas and call it something altogether different, then say it was inspired by animes such as Cowboy Bebpop etc...

Why can't Fox just get Joss Whedon to do another Firefly movie? I know Nathan Fillion is working on Castle and Summer Glau's doing all sorts of things, but come on. I guarantee it'd be better than a live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop.

Actually, it would be just like a live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop, given how Firefly was to begin with...

Because the first one flopped. Gotta love the "critical acclaim / box office disaster" pairing.

I did a random image search for "Ted" Theodore Logan and Spike for lolz, and thankfully it's already been done.

May the Gods stop this from happening.

No movie should ever cost half a billion dollars.

Well, I guess that's a good point. Part of me wants to say that however much it costs to make it good is however much it should, though.

Not that "expensive" equals "good", but in this case, it couldn't hurt. At least we'll have something to look at.
