Netflix to produce BRZRKR : An Anime Spinoff Series Based on Keanu Reeves’s comic book

The ‘John Wick’ actor Keanu Reeves’s epic saga of corruption, brutality, and desolation about an immortal warrior’s 80,000-year fight through the ages is going to be adapted into a feature film followed by an anime spinoff series, Netflix confirmed on their Twitter account on Tuesday.

It does not yet have a release date, but Reeves will produce, star in the film, and voice the anime.

About The Story

Keanu Reeves is immortal, everyone knows this. It is just an indisputable fact at this point, and now his book about an immortal warrior, known as Berzerker, as he fights his way through the ages has been published: this further proves that point.

Anyway, jokes aside, published in English by Boom! Studios, BRZRKR is a 12-issue limited series that was published on March 3, 2021, sold over 615,000 copies, making it the highest-selling launch in almost thirty years.

Boom! Studios describe the story as:

The man known only as Berzerker is half-mortal and half-God, cursed and compelled to violence… even at the sacrifice of his sanity. But after wandering the world for centuries, Berzerker 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, Berzerker will be granted the one thing he desires — the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence… and how to end it.

About The Author

BRZRKR is created by Keanu Reeves, co-written by Reeves and New York Times bestselling writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!), and illustrated by famed Marvel artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America) with colors by Bill Crabtree (BPRD), letters by Clem Robins (Hellboy), and character designs and covers by Rafael Grampá (The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child).

Cast & Production

The feature film will star BRZRKR creator Keanu Reeves as the main character “B.” Keanu Reeves will produce, with Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for BOOM! Studios, Stephen Hamel for Company Films, and Adam Yoelin will executive produce for BOOM! Studios.

While the Brzrkr movie will adapt the comic book, the anime series will further expand the BRZRKR universe by exploring different elements of the story where Reeves will reprise his role and voice his character.
