Netflix To Develop Live-Action Film Based On Keanu Reeves's Comic Book 'Brzrkr'; Reeves To Star In And Produce

Netflix has acquired the rights to the BOOM! Studios comic book BRZRKR and will first adapt the story into a feature film followed by an anime spinoff series.

BRZRKR is created by Keanu Reeves, written by Reeves and New York Times bestselling writer Matt Kindt, and illustrated by famed Marvel artist Ron Garney with colors by Bill Crabtree, letters by Clem Robins, and character designs and covers by Rafael Grampá

BRZRKR is a brutally epic saga about an immortal warrior's 80,000 year fight through the ages. The man known only as "B" is half-mortal and half-god, , cursed and compelled to violence... even at the sacrifice of his sanity. But after wandering the earth for centuries, B may have finally found a refuge - working for the U.S. government to fight the battles too violent and too dangerous for anyone else. In exchange, B will be granted the one thing he desires - the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence... and how to end it.

BRZRKR originated from an original idea Reeves had been developing for a number of years.

Keanu Reeves; Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for BOOM! Studios; Stephen Hamel for Company Films will Produce. Adam Yoelin for BOOM! Studios will Executive Produce

Reeves recently completed production on Matrix 4 which will be released later this year. He will begin production on John Wick 4 this Spring.

The anime series will further expand the BRZRKR universe by exploring different elements of the story. In the series, Reeves will reprise his role and voice his character.

This is a 12-issue limited series published by Boom! Studios, with the first issue having launched on March 3, 2021.

The inaugural issue has already sold over 615,000, making it the highest-selling launch in almost thirty years.

BOOM! Studios has a first-look deal for live action and animated television series with Netflix.

Well it looks like Keanu literally wrote a comic book with himself in it. Makes sense and im sure it will be awesome.

Exactly what I thought, seems a bit self serving, I mean the character looks just like he does.

I got faith this is going to be bad ass cool though, I'm down.

Was not aware of this BRZRKR comic...

Will keep my eyes on this Keanu creation now.....

You got to love Reeves =^)

BRZRKR has a "Casca Eternal Warrior" vibe...

Now that's a book (there's 53) that should think about making into series...

Keanu makes John Wick, Charlize makes Atomic Blonde. She makes Old Guard, he's making this. Are they trying to one up each other... Can't wait for the team up movie
