Moreover, this isn’t an ordinary injury, no it will require surgery, for which Cho has been flown back to Los Angeles, and extensive rehabilitation. Because of this, the production has been shut down for seven to nine months.

The new schedule will be set when Cho will recover from this. This movie is the adaptation on one of the best anime which is called Cowboy Bebop and it was going well as the production was on its 10-episode order when the accident happened.
