Fans of the John Wick franchise and its star Keanu Reeves will be excited to learn that Reeves will be starring in Netflix’s new live-action adaptation of his hit comic, BRZRKR. Netflix is also currently developing an anime series on the same comic that will also star and be produced by Reeves.
Exciting news! Netflix is developing a live-action film AND follow-up anime series based on Keanu Reeves’ BRZRKR, a brutally epic saga about an immortal warrior’s 80,000 year fight through the ages. Reeves will produce and star in the film, and voice the anime,” Netflix confirmed in a new statement.
Reeves created the comic that is written by Reeves and Matt Kindt with art by Ron Garney. BRZRKR originally started on Kickstarter before BOOM! Studios picked it up. The first issue of the 12-issue limited series was released this March.
The comic follows an immortal warrior, known as Berzerker, as he fights his way through the ages seeking only one thing: the truth about his blood-soaked existence and how to end it!
