In addition to the live-action movie, the streaming service is also developing an animated series based on the comics. Reeves will be producing the series and also voicing his character in the film.
“Known only as BRZRKR, he is half man and half God, cursed and forced to live in the midst of violence… After traveling the world for centuries, he can finally find refuge – working for the US government in violent and dangerous missions… Too difficult for an ordinary person. In return, BRZRKR will be granted the one thing he wants: the truth about his endless bloody existence… and how to end it.
