When it was first announced that Keanu Reeves would co-write the Brzrkr comic for BOOM! Studios, it was only a matter of time before it would get picked up for a film or show. Now it has been announced he will star in and produce a live-action film and anime series based on the comic for Netflix.
Brzrkr is an epic saga about an immortal warrior that has spent the past 80,000 years fighting through the ages. The half-mortal and half-god named B has wandered the earth as he is compelled to violence. This is until he finds a job 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.
