Netflix News: Keanu Reeves’ to Star in Live-Acton Film and Anime of ‘BRZRKR’
In September 2020, Boom! Studios launched a initiative to "bring new comics to new readers" by kicking off a Kickstarter campaign offering complete graphic novels sets. The first offering was BRZRKR from Keanu Reeves, co-writer Matt Kindt and artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America), colorist Bill Crabtree (BPRD), letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy) and character designs and covers by Rafael Grampá.
BRZRKR Synopsis: 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 world 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. It's an insanely epic saga that spans 80,ooo years worth of battles.
For comic readers who missed the Kickstarter, BRZRKR Issue 1 (of twelve) hit comic shops March 3, 2021

Coming to Netflix...
Now, Netflix has acquired the rights to both the life action adaptation and anime (spin-off) series. The live-action film starting Reeves will release first - date still to be determined. The anime series will follow and expand on characters and story elements set up in the movie. Reeves will voice "B" for the anime as well. We'll be keeping this project on our radar (and not just because Ro hit up that Kickstarter and bought all three hardback volumes...)
