Keanu Reeves' BRZRKR was just a stunt leading to immediate adaptations

Wouldn't you know it. According to The Verge, actor Reeves' ultra-hyped comic venture, BRZRKR, the story where they made it such a point to emphasize violence galore, is now being adapted into not one, but two different projects: a live action movie, and an animated Netflix production:
Netflix has its next major action franchise: an adaptation of Keanu Reeves’ new BRZRKR comic book series, which the streaming service is turning into both a live-action film (produced and starring Reeves) and a sequel anime series (with Reeves voicing his character), the company announced today.

BRZRKR is a new 12-issue series from Boom Studios (the first issue of which was released earlier in March) co-written by Reeves himself (in his comics debut) and Matt Kindt (Folklords, Justice League of America) with art by Ron Garney. Fittingly, Reeves will play the title character in both the upcoming live-action series and the anime, although there’s no release date announced yet.

The ultra-violent comic follows an immortal berserker — who coincidentally looks almost exactly like Keanu — over his 80,000 year life, culminating in the present day, where he works for the US government in exchange for help discovering the secrets of his life and how he can finally die. (It’s a similar concept to Netflix’s The Old Guard, which is also based on a popular run of comics and is viewed as another potential franchise for the streaming service.)
So this was what the project was all about? And they're even going to produce and air these on a channel becoming well known as a woke outlet, and already losing audiences because of their political activism. Whether or not BRZRKR will suffer from similar development, we can only guess what content will remain in the finished product. I've got a feeling that, even if the crowdfunding hadn't been a big success, they'd still go ahead and produce these farces, in laughable attempts to build extended franchises for filmmaking. It's ridiculous already, and decidedly not worth the effort in viewing, any more than reading.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
