The Hollywood superstar Keanu Reeves has revealed some new details about his film BRZRKR. The actor shared in an interview that his upcoming film BRZRKR, which is an on-screen adaptation of his comic book series by the same name BRZRKR will be R-rated.
He said, "My ambition or hope is not to do a filmed version of the comic book so that they’ll have things in common, definitely the main character and his kind of rule set, but that we can take it to other places as well. We’re talking to a couple of different animation companies and trying to figure that out. And, again, for me I’m hoping to be inspired and influenced…there are some rules to the story, but I also want other creators to do their version of it. So I’m hoping to do a different version of a metaverse wherein the sense having different storytellers with one set of rules but go other places with it. We’re working on trying to set up a company with the animation, and we’ve hired a writer for the film Mattson Tomlin. He’s been cool and just starting to put things together. That’s where we’re at.”
The announcement of the film was made by the video streaming giant Netflix itself on Twitter. Netflix tweeted captioning, "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."
