THE BATMAN Screenwriter Mattson Tomlin Shares Huge Update On Keanu Reeves' BRZRKR Movie

Netflix's highly anticipated adaptation of BRZRKR starring Keanu Reeves (John Wick) just got a very positive update thanks to The Batman writer Mattson Tomlin. Find out what he's revealed right here...

The Batman writer Mattson Tomlin may be hard at work on the upcoming sequel, but he's now confirmed that he's also recently finished penning the screenplay for Netflix's BRZRKR

Starring Keanu Reeves, there's a lot of excitement for this particular comic book adaptation, and the writer followed up a Tweet from June by confirming that he was talking about this project when he said, "Unhinged and deranged that I've been allowed to write this movie."

Adapting the comic book series of the same name from Reeves, Matt Kindt, and Ron Garney, the actor has previously described the title character as "cursed by violence trying to find out who he is." The movie was first announced last March, with plans for an anime spinoff series also revealed by Netflix at the time. Reeves will play "B" in both adaptations, no great surprise when the comic depicts the enigmatic badass with the actor's likeness. 

Tomlin is no stranger to genre fare after previously penning Project Power and the upcoming Terminator anime series which, you guessed it, is also Netflix-bound. 

BRZRKR doesn't have a director, release date, or cast beyond Reeves, so it's still early days for this one. We're assuming the actor would fit this in somewhere around the recently announced Constantine 2, though he remains busy following his resurgence thanks to Lionsgate's John Wick franchise. 

"The man known only as B. is half-mortal and half-God, cursed and compelled to violence...even at the sacrifice of his sanity," reads the official description of the comic book series. "But after wandering the world for centuries, the Berzerker may have finally found a refuge – working for the U.S. government to fight the battles too violent and too dangerous for anyone else."

"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, eh?
