Cobra The Space Pirate Licensed

Discotek Media / Eastern Star announced their acquisition of Space Pirate Cobra The Movie on their facebook page this morning.

The 1982 film, based on the manga Cobra, follows the exploits of the cigar smoking anti-hero with a gun for a left arm and a penchant for helping women in thongs.  It was followed by a TV series in the ’80s, and more recently by two OVA series produced for the franchise’s 30th anniversary.

This is an opportune time to license the film, as a live action Hollywood remake is currently in the works.
