Geek Native wrote about Brzrkr in June. It’s become a much larger story since then, with mainstream media getting involved today.
Brzrkr is a comic book made by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt (Suicide Squad). In fact, the two used Skype to proceed with the project while Reeves was filming Matrix 4.
Netflix has announced that they’ve got the movie rights from Boom! Studios who will be publishing it. Reeves will star as the immortal.
There’s an anime coming as well, which gets plenty of space in Netflix’s news but isn’t quite the headline feature that the movie is. Keanu Reeves will voice act for the main character.
Brzrkr is an original story, a brutal saga about a warrior born from a war god and a human mother. Known only as “B”, the warrior is cursed to violence, where he ends up working for the US Government on missions too messy for anyone else.
The anime will expand the universe.
Boom! Studios already had a success on their hands as the comic has sold 615, 000 copies. That makes the title the best-selling launch in almost thirty years.
