    After launching its 12-issue limited series, Keanu Reeves' first-ever
    action comic book titled BRZRKR is officially getting adapted for the
    big screen. Netflix has successfully acquired the rights to the BOOM!
    Studios comic book and is in the process of developing a film
    adaptation based on the brutally epic saga of Berzerker. The John
    Wick star has also signed on the project to produce and portray the
    live-action version of the protagonist, who actually bears quite a
    resemblance to Reeves. As a way to further expand its universe, the
    streamer is also planning to debut an anime spinoff series of BRZRKR

    Exciting news! Netflix is developing a live action film
    AND follow-up anime series based on Keanu Reeves' BRZRKR,
    a brutally epic saga about an immortal warrior's 80,000
    year fight through the ages. Reeves will produce and star
    in the film, and voice the anime.

    Created by Keanu Reeves, BRZRKR is a brutally epic saga about an
    immortal warrior's 80,000-year fight through the ages. 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 earth 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.

    The 12-issue limited series was based on Reeves' original idea which
    he has been developing with Boom! Studios for a long time. It is
    co-written by Reeves and Matt Kindt with illustrations by Marvel
    artist Ron Garney and colors by Bill Crabtree, letters by Clem Robins
    and character designs and covers by Rafael Grampá. It finally launched
    on March 3 where the first issue has already sold over 615,000 copies, 
    making it the highest-selling debut in almost 30 years.

    The BRZRKR adaptations will be produced by Reeves and Company Films'
    Stephen Hamel. The projects will be part of BOOM! Studios first-look
    deal with the streamer. BOOM! Studios' Ross Richie and Stephen
    Christie are producing with Adam Yoelin set as an executive producer.
