The chain-smoking misery guts returns to the big screen

Reeves and Original Director Return

A sequel to 2005s Conatantine movie is moving ahead at Warner Bros with Keannu Reeves reprising the role of John Constantine and original director Francis Lawrence also returning. Reeves portrayal of the chain smoking warlock and his battles with the forces of darkness was excellent, even though they changed the character from being an English misery guts to an American misery guts.

The original Constantine, starred Keannu Reeves, Rachel Weisz, Djimon Houston, Tilda Swinton, Peter Stormare and Shia LeBoeuf. Whilst it departed from the comic book origin and details it was a great self contained adventure for John Constantine. The sequel has a script written by Akiva Goldsman, who has a glittering CV, most recently writing and producing Star Trak Picard and Strange New Worlds.

Reeves Constantine

John Constantine first appeared in DC Comics Hellblazer, created by Alan Moore and Stephen R. Bissette. The series has been one of the longest for Vertigo comics. Reeves version of the character eschewed the britishness but crafted a highly effective story – hopes are high for the sequel.
