Keanu Reeves is adding comic book writer to his padded resumé. He’ll be co-writing with Matt Kindt on the upcoming BOOM! Studios series BRZRKR. Art on the series will be drawn by Alessandro Vitti.
The 12 issue series will center on a warrior who looks a lot like a certain beloved actor and has walked a blood-soaked path across the world for centuries. In present day, the Berzerker does dangerous jobs for the U.S. government in exchange for the truth about his existence.
Last year Reeves met with BOOM! in order to create material as pitches for live-action projects. Because all comics are are movie and TV pitches.
Even stranger than the open TV and movie pitch is that BOOM! can afford to pay Reeves on this project, given their historic page rates.
The first issue is set to release in October.
