Plans for the sequel to Constantine (2005) with Keanu Reeves

The Constantine film starring Keanu Reeves could have a sequel at the time, according to director Francis Lawrence.

The universe DC Comics real action has entered quite unknown territory in recent months. Among the crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths” of The CW and the news that Michael Keaton could go back to the role of Bruce Wayne / Batman in the next movie of The Flash, has led to speculation among fans as to what other iconic portrayals of DC characters might return. Including the cult classic version of Keanu Reeves on John Constantine. Since they are currently preparing a new movie for this character, it is not known if Keanu Reeves will be the protagonist or if they will look for someone new.

In a recent interview, the director of Constantine (2005), Francis LawrenceHe discussed his initial plans for a sequel and how he would be willing to continue that idea again today.

"I think we all wanted to do it. It was successful enough, "explained Lawrence. “We wanted to make a responsible film, more classified R. By responsible, I mean that we would make a film that would not cost as much as the original, which we thought would be PG-13. We worked on the sequel Constantine for a while. It was difficult to find where to take it. What I really liked about the first one was that it was a really personal story. So I thought it would be a mistake to get caught up in the supernatural world. The idea of ​​a personal story was really interesting, and that was the hard thing to find. "

"We've been talking about it recently," Lawrence continued. “We always get stuck because we all love the movie, and especially realizing that there is a real cult for this movie, it would be fun to make it. Keanu, Akiva and I have really talked about a sequel to Constantine. "

The Warner Bros. / DC Comics plans don't seem like they want a sequel but it will be a reboot.

"Unfortunately, I don't even remember who has the film rights, but with all these shared universes that exist now, with Constantine as part of Vertigo, which is part of DC, people have plans for these shared universes," added Lawrence. “You know, there could be different Constantines and things like that. Right now, we don't have that character available for TV or movies, which is a bummer. We all investigated it, but I think it's kind of crazy when you have Keanu Reeves, who would love to do another Constantine, and us wanting to do another Constantine, and people say: Uh, no, we have other plans. ” We'll see what happens". | Movies, comics and series
