The Batman Writer Mattson Tomlin is said to be hard at work on the upcoming sequel, but the scribe has now confirmed he has also recently finished writing the script for Netflix. BRZRKR.
Starring Keanu Reeves, there’s a huge amount of excitement for this particular comic book adaptation, and the writer followed up a Tweet from June confirming he was referring to this movie when he said, “Unbalanced and disturbed that I was allowed to write this film.
Adapting the comic book series of the same name by Reeves, Matt Kindt and Ron Garney, the actor previously described the main character as “cursed with violence trying to find out who he is.” The film was first announced last March, with plans for a spin-off anime series also announced by Netflix. Reeves will play “B” in both adaptations, no big surprise when the comic portrays the enigmatic tough guy in the actor’s image.
Tomlin is no stranger to gender fare after previously writing Project Power and the next terminator anime series which, you guessed it, also ties into Netflix.
BRZRKR doesn’t currently have a director, release date, or cast beyond Reeves as the lead, so it’s still early days for this one. We’re guessing the actor would incorporate this somewhere around the recently announced announcement. Constantine 2although it remains as busy as ever after its resurgence thanks to Lionsgate’s John Wick franchise.
“The man known only as B. is half-mortal and half-God, cursed and forced into violence…even at the sacrifice of his sanity,” reads the official description of the comic book series. “But after roaming the world for centuries, the Berzerker may have finally found refuge – working for the US government to fight battles too fierce and too dangerous for anyone.”
“In exchange, B. will be granted the one thing he desires – the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence…and how to end it.”
Sounds like a fun ride, huh?
