Netflix's live-action adaptation of the cult Japanese anime series is going on a lengthy hiatus after Cho suffered a knee injury during a freak accident that happened on the last take of a well-rehearsed scene, according to Deadline. Cho was flown from Cowboy Bebop's New Zealand set to Los Angeles for surgery and extensive rehab. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the accident happened on Oct. 5. This afternoon, Cho posed a message on Instagram, quoting Bruce Lee saying: "Water can flow or it can crash.” He added: "Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. Gonna be back and flowing in no time!" Deadline reports that Netflix "is fully committed to Cho in the title role, willing to wait until late spring/early summer to resume filming, along with the logistical challenges that presents." A Netflix spokesperson adds: "Our thoughts are with John and he has our complete support as he recuperates from this injury."
