‘Constantine 2’: Keanu Reeves and Francis Lawrence Returning for DC Sequel

Did anybody see this coming?

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has greenlit a sequel to the 2005 supernatural thriller Constantine with star Keanu Reeves and director Francis Lawrence set to return.

Akiva Goldsman will write the screenplay and produce the project through his Weed Road Pictures, alongside Bad Robot’s J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella.

Reeves will reprise as supernatural exorcist and demonologist John Constantine, who “in the original is dying but stays around to save his soul by keeping demons from hell from breaching earth. He also gets between a battle between the archangel Gabriel and Lucifer.”

No details yet on where the sequel might take John Constantine or who else might star. It’s the latest (and I think the first) DC film announced under the new Warner Bros. Discovery.

We’ll keep you posted as more information is revealed.

Are you down for a Constantine sequel or is it too late for another go at this property?
