There seem to be a lot of space pirate movies on the horizon. Daybreakers' The Spierig bros have Captain Blood, Christian Alvart's got Captain Future, and now Piranha director Alenxandre Aja wants to make the manga favorite Cobra—The Space Pirate into a tent-pole.

According to Deadline, "He wants to turn the futuristic saga into a tent pole-sized live action franchise. He is writing the script with Gregory Levasseur and will produce with Levasseur, Marc Sessego and Alexandra Milchan."


I don't know much about the series, but it sounds cool.

Space Adventure Cobra is my favorite japanese export product.

Pure PULP nonsense, but really entertaining.

I don't think people understand here. Cowboy Bebop would not happen as a live film because it would cost to much to make. Same for Cobra Space Pirate. It's going to be a huge sum of money and very hard script to write.

I don't know how they will pull this off. Have they ever been able to pull of a anime to live action film? Done right? Maybe Death Note is the only one.
