Los Angeles, Oct 19 (IANS) Actor John Cho sustained a knee injury on the set of the live-action Netflix series “Cowboy Bebop” while filming in New Zealand in October, leading to a seven to nine month break in production.

While the nature of the incident that led to the injury is not altogether clear, it occurred during a rehearsed sequence that was not considered to be a large-scale stunt, reports variety.com.

Cho is back in Los Angeles, where he will undergo surgery, according to a person familiar with the matter.

He posted a Bruce Lee quote on his Instagram page Friday afternoon: “Water can flow or it can crash. Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. Gonna be back and flowing in no time!”

“Cowboy Bebop” is a 10-episode adaptation of the original 26-episode anime series from Sunrise studio, about a group of misfit bounty hunters in space, led by Spike Spiegel.

Cho plays Spiegel, described as 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.

Daniella Pineda and Alex Hassell are also part of the main cast, playing Faye Valentine and Spiegel’s nemesis Vicious.
