Keanu Reeves hypes up the movie spin on his comic-collaboration BRZKR. AMC’s Interview With the Vampire has found its Claudia. Plus, new footage from Eternals, and what’s next on Star Trek: Lower Decks. Spoilers now!
THR reports Elizabeth Reaser, Jeremy Davies, Luke Kirby, Casey Likes, and Emyri Crutchfield have joined the cast of David Slade’s Dark Harvest, an adaptation of a novel by Norman Partridge in which the teenage boys of a small Midwestern town “eagerly square off” with a “butcher knife-wielding” entity alternately known as “October Boy,” “Ol’ Hacksaw Face,” and “Sawtooth Jack.”
In conversation with Collider, Keanu Reeves revealed Mattson Tomlin—the screenwriter behind both Matt Reeves’ The Batman and the upcoming Mega Man movie—will be writing the film adaptation of his comic book with Matt Kindt and Ron Garney, BRZKR.
We’re working with Netflix who have been very cool. They’re going to let us do an R-rated story which is cool. My ambition or hope is not to do a filmed version of the comic book so that they’ll have things in common, definitely the main character and his kind of rule set, but that we can take it to other places as well.

Deadline also reports Heavy Metal Studios is teaming with Barel Entertainment for an animated series based on Dan Fogler’s graphic novel anthology, Moon Lake. Hosted by The Man in the Moon—a captive of alien “moon-men” since childhood—The Man “prevents these aliens from attacking Earth by keeping them endlessly entertained with shocking tales of gruesome horror and hilarity. Each episode follows a different deranged set of characters in a strange new setting; whether it be following a ghost-whispering cave-woman on prehistoric Earth, a murderous cheerleader at a modern-day high school, or fighters in a bizarre alien war in space, each story plays into campy classic monster, horror, and sci-fi tropes in a hilarious way.”
