In 2021 we saw the launch of BRZRKR, comic created by Keanu Reeves, which had a very positive reception. Seeing the initial success, Netflix secured the rights to this property, confirming that a live-action movie and animated series were already in development. Although there are still several details to be announced, It was recently revealed that Reeves could be taking over as director for the live-action project.
Through an interview with Collider, Reeves, who will also star in the live-action film, He has indicated that he is 33% sure that he will take the position of director of this project. The reason why he’s still not entirely convinced is that the script for the film was barely finalized, so he hasn’t read it yet, and he’s still open to collaborating with other filmmakers. This was what he commented:
“I know it’s a lot of work, but when the movie I directed, Man of Tai Chi, was born, I became the director because it was part of the writing process and I didn’t want to hand it over. I was like, oh, okay. I have to run this. I’m not there in ‘BRZRKR’ yet. I have to read the script, but I’m also interested in having a collaborator and what he can contribute.”
Until now, Reeves has only directed Man of Tai Chia film with which he felt extremely attachedsomething that could well happen with the adaptation of BRZRKR. Unfortunately, at the moment there is no more information about this project. Considering the script barely made it into Reeves’ hands, it’s sure to be a long time before we see a trailer.
BRZRKR is the story of an immortal warrior who faces all kinds of dangers throughout history. The main character also has a very similar style to Reeves. On related topics, a sequel to animal. Similarly, it is confirmed that Velma is a lesbian in the new Scooby Doo movie.
Keanu Reeves has proven to be one of the most valued actors in recent years. If the playwright manages to transition to directing successfully with BRZRKR, this would be a great step for his career. In this way, we could see more projects of Reeves where we do not see him in front of the camera.
