Back in August we reported that director Alexandre Aja is adapting the Cobra - The Space Pirate manga, which was created by Buichi Terasawa. It isn't known when Cobra - The Space Pirate will start production, although Alexandre Aja is currently shopping the project around. Take a look at the synopsis for Cobra - The Space Pirate below.

In a future where merchant spaceships and ruthless brigands sail across space, Cobra is a notorious rogue pirate whose refusal to align with the United Galaxies Federation or the Pirates Guild puts him on the business end of a huge bounty. As he tries to keep his identity secret and avoid capture, Cobra teams up with a sexy bounty hunter named Jane, who is out to locate her sisters and decode a treasure map tattooed on their backs. Their goal: to liberate a lost treasure on Mars. To Aja, Cobra was every bit a seminal rogue as Han Solo or Indiana Jones.
