posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The NZ Herald reported on Wednesday that the live-action Cowboy Bebop cast is currently on site in New Zealand working on the Netflix series. John Cho was spotted with stuntman Tristan Liu and actor Mustafa Shakir at a local pub.
The New Zealand-based stunt coordinator Allan Poppleton of Cunning Stunts shared a video of the series' cast and crew training for the sci-fi action series. The post reads: "Finishing up our Boot Camp today....!!! 3...2...1...Let's JAM....!!!! #cowboybebop #stunts #movielife"
Netflix describes the series:
Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Radical Ed: 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.
The series is a co-production between Netflix and Tomorrow Studios, with Netflix handling physical production. Tomorrow Studios is a partnership between producer Marty Adelstein (Prison Break, Teen Wolf, producer for the live-action One Piece project) and ITV Studios. Shinichiro Watanabe, the original anime's director, is serving as consultant for the project. Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio are credited as showrunners and executive producers.
Thanks to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.
