Keanu Reeves perhaps didn’t ask for so much. The actor, already well established on movie sets through many films, has been successful last year… in bookstores! No novel on the agenda but a comic book: “BRZRKR”, which has been selling like hotcakes. Co-written with Matt Kindt and illustrated by Alessandro Vitti, this bestseller recently caught the eye of Netflix. At the end of March, the platform announced on Twitter the adaptation of the latter in the form of a movie and an animated series spin-off.
Keanu Reeves to produce and star in

In exchange, Berzerker will be granted the one thing he desires — the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence… and how to end it.” If Netflix has not yet revealed the name of the person who will be behind the camera, we already know that Keanu Reeves will be producing, as well as staring in.
