Keanu Reeves, the man who is often called an immortal by his fans, is now ready to play a role befitting his reputation!! An anime series featuring Keanu Reeves, can you believe it?
Who doesn’t remember Keanu’s role in the Matrix? Or as a badass assassin in John Wick? Social media sites are swarming with his fan accounts. So what exactly brings the star to the world of anime?
Netflix has just announced that its next big action series will be based on Keanu Reeves! BRZRKR, the comic book series created by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt, will be adapted into an anime series and a live-action movie.
Keanu Reeves will be voicing the protagonist of the anime. In the live-action film, he will star as the main character as well as produce the project. Who else can fit into the role of an immortal warrior better than Reeves?
BRZRKR has a total of 12 issues, and we are hoping that the anime stays true to the series. Although the release date has not been announced yet, we hope that we get to watch it as soon as possible.
Reeves has played some dark roles before, but it looks like the actor is not done with such roles yet. The genre has attracted him to the point of co-creating a fantasy series that mixes myths with the modern world and, of course, violence.
“B,” the anime’s protagonist, has many things to figure out about his blood-soaked immortal existence. It will be very interesting to see Reeves play a character that is created by him.
BRZRKR is a 12 volume comic book series written by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt. Ronn Graney illustrated it and it was first released on 4th March 2021.
BRZRKR follows an immortal character called “B” who is half-mortal and half-God. He is cursed to live a violent existence and has wandered the Earth for centuries.
In the modern world, “B” works under the US government to fight in wars that are too dangerous for others. Will he find the reason behind his curse and the way to end such a miserable existence?
