Netflix production Cowboy Bebop has halted production in New Zealand following an injury to star John Cho.
Cho (Hawaii Five-0) sustained a knee injury on the set while filming. The nature of the incident that led to the injury is not altogether clear, but reports claim it occurred during a rehearsed sequence that was not considered to be a large-scale stunt.
Cho is now back in Los Angeles, where he will undergo surgery.
Cho posted a Bruce Lee quote on his Instagram page Friday afternoon: “Water can flow or it can crash.”
He added: “Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. Gonna be back and flowing in no time!”
Production is now on a 7-9 month break.
The 10 part series surrounds a group of misfit bounty hunters in space. Cho plays an “impossibly cool bounty hunter with a deadly smile, a wry wit, and style to spare,” who traverses the solar system with his ex-cop partner, Jet, who will be portrayed by Mustafa Shakir.
