Keanu Reeves to Star in Live Action Film & Anime Adaptation of 'BRZRKR' for Netflix

Keanu Reeves is bringing his debut comic to Netflix!

Variety reports that Keanu will produce and star in live-action and anime adaptations of “Brzrkr”, which co-authored alongside Matt Kindt.

The new projects will be an addition to the 12-episode limited series with the live-action film to debut first and the anime series to follow.

The comics follow a half-mortal, half-god named B who is cursed and compelled towards violence. After wandering the earth for centuries, he may have possibly found a refuge by working for the U.S. government to fight battles too dangerous for anyone else. For his service, B will be granted the truth about his existence, including how to end it.

“Brzrkr” has been a huge hit for its publisher BOOM! Studios since its March 3 launch, selling over 615,000 copies of its inaugural issue. The new comic book series all started from a Kickstarter that raised about $1.5 million dollars to help bring the comic to the public.

Keanu recently teased what fans could expect from his upcoming film, The Matrix 4!
