Netflix to Produce Live-Action Film and Anime Sequel to Keanu Reeves’ BRZRKR


Netflix has announced their plans to produce a live-action film and anime based on Keanu Reeves’ BRZRKR comic book.

BRZRKR is a crowdfunded comic book series that represents the actor’s first foray into comic book writing. Reeves is credit as author of the series alongside Matt Kindt who has worked for DC, Valiant Entertainment, and Dark Horse Comics among others.

The series features a half-man half-god warrior known only as Berserker who’s condemned to an immortal lifetime of fighting. You can read a summary of the series from the comic’s Kickstarter campaign below.

“BRZRKR is the first comic book and graphic novel series from the iconic Keanu Reeves, who makes his comic book writing debut alongside New York Times best-selling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Justice League of America), superstar artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America),  Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated colorist Bill Crabtree (BPRD), and letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy) in a brutally violent new series about one immortal warrior’s fight through the ages.

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.”

At the time of publishing, no staff, cast, or animation studio for the series has been announced. However the anime is intended to be a follow-up to the upcoming live-action film.
