I can’t believe how long it’s been since I blogged about the anime Space Adventure Cobra which I discovered for the first time almost exactly one year ago while taking a nostalgic trip through some contemporaneous anime.   The fact that I discovered it at all was down to a rumour of an “imminent” Alex Aja live-action reboot.  Since then, according to IMDB, the thing is still in development.  I had this  teaser poster on my desktop for ages, so I thought I’d share it with you-


Yes Alex “Piranha 3D” Aja is at the helm… That’s a bit like putting Marvin the Paranoid Android, Rimmer or me in charge of the Samaritans helpline…

I really hope he does something worthwhile with this rather prestigious franchise from legendary manga-man Buichi Terasawa because I think it has the potential of being the next James Bond/Han Solo/Flash Gordon all rolled into one ridiculously cool movie… if it’s done right.

Talking about space pirates, and given my obsession with the same, I didn’t know the subject was so popular.  Good old Wikipedia.  Shiver me drive tubes!
