Keanu Reeves is bringing his comic book “BRZRKR” to life with a live-action film and animes series at Netflix. The streaming giant has secured the rights to BRZRKR, the BOOM! Studios-published comic book created by Keanu Reeves.
Reeves, 56, is set to star in the film and serve as executive producer, according to a Netflix press release, with the anime series set to follow the film.
BRZRKR, based on an original idea by Reeves, is co-written by the John Wick star and New York Times bestselling writer Matt Kindt and illustrated by Marvel artist Ron Garney with colours by Bill Crabtree, letters by Clem Robins, and character designs and covers by Rafael Grampá.
The first issue of the 12-issue limited series launched on March 3 and has already sold over 615,000.
The story is about an immortal warrior’s 80,000-year fight through the ages. The warrior, which Reeves would play, is known only as “B”, a 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.
Deadline reported that the series will expand the BRZRKR universe by exploring different elements of the story with Reeves reprising his role and voice his character.
The “John Wick” actor will produce the film alongside Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for BOOM! Studios and Stephen Hamel for Company Films will Produce, with Adam Yoelin executive producing for BOOM! Studios.
Reeves recently wrapped filming on The Matrix 4, returning as Neo, which will hit theatres on December 22.
