Deadline reports that Netflix has acquired BRZRKR, based on the comic book created by Keanu Reeves. Reeves will also produce and star in the screen adaptations, including the anime.
BRZRKR is co-written by Matt Kindt and illustrated by Ron Garney. The colors are by Bill Crabtree, letters by Clem Robins, and character designs and covers by Rafael Grampá.
The comic centers around an immortal warrior known as “B” and his 80,000 year old journey. B is a half-mortal and half-god, cursed and compelled to violence which drives him to the brink of insanity.
After centuries of fighting, B is now a mercenary for the US government, taking on battles that are too dangerous to fight. B works with the government in the hopes of learning the truth of his existence.
The first issue of the 12-issue limited series debuted on March 3 and has already sold over 615,000 copies.
