Cowboy Bebop Filming Postponed Due to John Cho Injury

-

Cowboy Bebop filming has been postponed for about seven to nine months following a knee injury sustained by lead actor John Cho on the set in New Zealand, according to Deadline. The site says the freak accident happened on the last take of a well-rehearsed scene. It will require Cho to have surgery and an extensive rehabilitation.

The Netflix series had announced the start of production earlier this month. The adaptation of the original animated show was a few episodes into production of its 10-episode order when the accident happened. Following the injury, Cho posted the following on his social channels: “‘Water can flow or it can crash.’ – Bruce Lee. Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. Gonna be back and flowing in no time.” You can view his post below.


“Our thoughts are with John, and he has our complete support as he recuperates from this injury,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement.

Cho is playing Spike Spiegel and that cast also includes Mustafa Shakir (Jet Black), Daniella Pineda (Faye Valentine), Alex Hassell (Vicious), and Elena Satine (Julia). Netflix also previously confirmed that Radical Ed is in, but the character hasn’t been cast yet.

Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of 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.


Alex Garcia Lopez (The WitcherMarvel’s DaredevilMarvel’s The PunisherUtopia) will direct the first two episodes. The 10-episode series is a co-production of Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. Netflix will handle physical production. Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio are showrunners and executive producers. Also executive producing are Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios, Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki, and Shin Sasaki of Sunrise Inc, Tetsu Fujimura and Matthew Weinberg. Christopher Yost will write the first episode and also executive produces.
