Keanu Reeves will star in both the movie and anime series of his comic, BRZRKR.
Per THR, the projects are being championed by Netflix, who picked up the screen rights to the Boom! Studios-published comic, whose first issue hit shelves only two weeks ago.
Reeves will also produce both projects, alongside Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for BOOM! Studios and Stephen Hamel of Company Films.
Netflix and Boom!, BRZRKR described the comic as 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.”
The feature will adapt the comic, which is intended to run for 12 issues, while the anime will explore different elements of the BRZRKR universe.
We can’t wait!
