MTV sat down with Keanu Reeves to discuss his upcoming THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE. During their chat, the status of Reeve's COWBOY BEEBOP adaptation came up. Here's what he had to say:
There's a draft of the script, but the writer did such a great order to make the movie you would need half a billion dollars. [EDIT] The studio kinda just went: 'This script is fantastic - and it would cost half a billion dollars!

Reeves also indicates the script is currently being reworked into something more producible. If the movie ever happens, Reeves would play BEEBOP protagonist Spike Spiegel (wearing the blue jumpsuit in the clip below):
