Constantine Will Blaze Hell Again


It looks like we will get a sequel or “reimagining” of Constantine sometime in the future, according to producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who was at the Saturn Awards and won the Producer’s Showcase Award. The original 2005 Constantine movie was based on the DC / Vertigo comic book Hellblazer and was directed by Francis Lawrence. The comic Hellblazer “is set in a contemporary world, albeit a world of magic and supernatural conflict behind the scenes. John Constantine, the main character of Hellblazer, is portrayed as a kind of confidence man who does morally questionable things, arguably for the greater good. He usually triumphs through guile, deceit, and misdirection, but often makes more enemies in the process than he defeats.” The movie version told the story of “irreverent supernatural detective John Constantine (Keanu Reeves), who has literally been to Hell and back. When Constantine teams up with skeptical policewoman Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) to solve the mysterious suicide of her twin sister (also played by Weisz), their investigation takes them through the world of demons and angels that exists just beneath the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles. Caught in a catastrophic series of otherworldy events, the two become inextricably involved and seek to find their own peace at whatever cost.” Bloody Disgusting got a very quick second to ask the legendary producer “will Constantine 2 ever move forward?” After the jump, you can check out what she had to say.

“I hope [it happens]. I want to. We tried it, we always got there, and then we had a few bumps in the road. Keanu was involved with us, everybody was. We just had a few bumps in the road…We’re gonna try again…we heard a good take.”

Oookaaayyy…I guess what she’s trying to say is they plan on trying to make another movie based on the Hellblazer comic series. She’s heard a good pitch for another John Constantine movie, but there’s been some hold-ups. Maybe Keanu and everyone from the first movie will come back for a second film or maybe not. That’s what I’m getting out of that.
