They're Going To Film This (On TV): 'Cowboy Bebop'
A bad idea? Maybe not -- in big part because Cowboy Bebop doesn't have nearly the same number of obstacles to live-action adaptability as other shows

They're (Probably) Going To Film This (Again): 'Attack On Titan'
After the dismal live-action version produced in Japan, a Western remake of 'Titan' seems a no-brainer, but not merely because the story is easy to re-localize

Let's Film This: 'Cowboy Bebop' (2017, Post-'John Wick' Edition)
'Keanu Reeves as Spike Spiegel' is not a death sentence, and 'John Wick' is Exhibit A for the defense

You heard right - a Japanese live-action version of the now-classic manga and anime property is coming our way, with all kinds of interesting implications in tow

Let's Animate This (Again): 'AKIRA'
A new animated version of 'AKIRA', one that treats the entirety of the original story, would be far more welcome than a misconceived live-action version -- and wouldn't ding the reputation of the original movie, either

Let's Film This: 'The Dirty Pair'
After the slam-bang cosmic comedy of 'Guardians of the Galaxy', why not a live-action adaptation of the misadventures of those two interstellar troubleshooters?

Should We Film This? 'Ghost in the Shell'
A good live-action version of 'Ghost in the Shell' may well be possible, but can Hollywood do it without draining all the blood (and electricity) from its veins?

Let's Film This: 'Soul Eater'
It isn't just the Tim Burton-esque atmosphere that makes 'Soul Eater' ripe for a live-action version, but a lively and colorful cast of characters worthy of our attention

Let's Film This: 'Black Lagoon'
How is it that a live-action 'Black Lagoon' -- itself a loving homage to John Woo and Jerry Bruckheimer alike -- hasn't yet been put on the slate?

Let's Film This: 'Claymore'
A massive budget wouldn't be needed to realize this most emotionally-powered of dark fantasies -- just proper attention to its story and characters

Let's Film This: 'Fullmetal Alchemist'
Done right, a live-action 'Fullmetal Alchemist' could be a 'Lord of the Rings'-sized hit
