BRZRKR Screenwriter Announces The Finishing Of The Keanu Reeves Script
Mattson Tomlin teases the completion of the writing for Netflix's BRZRKR feature picture, in which Keanu Reeves stars and co-produces.
The author of the upcoming Netflix film BRZRKR, starring Keanu Reeves, and Mattson Tomlin, has stated that the script is complete. Tomlin shared a snapshot of the title page of the BRZRKR script on Twitter. This tweet was preceded by a previous post by Tomlin, which included a photograph of what looks to be the script's last page.
Previously, Tomlin tweeted in June 2022, "Unhinged and insane that I've been permitted to create this movie." The film will be based on the BRZRKR comic series, which was written by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt, and will feature art by Ron Garney. Reeves defined the comic's protagonist as "cursed by violence trying to figure out who he is" in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
The film was first announced in March 2021, along with a Netflix anime spinoff series. In both the live-action film and anime series, Reeves will play the title character, also known simply as "B." This character is modeled like Reeves in the comic. In October 2021, Tomlin was confirmed as the screenwriter for the BRZRKR film.
Other recent ventures have seen him achieve considerable success, most notably as a co-writer on the critical and commercial triumph The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader. Tomlin previously worked with Netflix on the 2020 feature Project Power, starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Tomlin is also the showrunner and executive producer for Netflix's upcoming Terminator anime series.
The film BRZRKR does not yet have an official director attached. Keanu Reeves has a number of projects in the works, including the television miniseries The Devil in the White City and the recently announced Constantine 2, in which he will reunite with director Francis Lawrence for the follow-up to their 2005 feature. The immensely successful John Wick franchise, helmed by Reeves, has two additional films in the works. John Wick: Chapter 4 is now in post-production, with a March 2023 release date set, and a fifth episode purportedly on the way. BRZRKR, written by Mattson Tomlin and starring Keanu Reeves, is planned to be released by Netflix but has no definite release date.
