Keanu Reeves to star in Netflix film and follow-up anime series based on his comic book BRZRKR

Good news for fans of Keanu Reeves, comic books and anime as the actor’s BRZKRK is being developed by Netflix.

The Matrix star’s comic is not only getting a live-action film on the streaming platform, but there will also be a follow-up anime series as well.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, Keanu is going to star in both versions – voicing the anime and playing the lead role in the live-action flick.

Netflix announced the news on social media in a post which read: ‘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.’

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 and is cursed and compelled to violence to the detriment of his sanity.

 

After wandering the earth for centuries, B appears to finally find 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.

The first issue of the 12-issue limited series launched on March 3 and has already sold over 615,000.

No word on when to expect the projects, but we’re sure it’ll be worth the wait.
