After several years of rumors and unanswered statements from Keanu Reeves, Warner Bros. will revive the character of John Constantine in the cinema. According to Deadline, the American studio has just confirmed the development of Constantine 2, the sequel to the film released in 2005 which adapted the dark adventures of the iconic exorcist and occultist from the DC Comics stable. For the occasion, Keanu Reeves will find the director Francis Lawrence (I am a legend, the saga Hunger Games), who had already staged the first part. In addition, the script has been entrusted to Akiva Goldsman (Da Vinci Code, The Dark Tower) and JJ Abrams will produce. The original film, based on the Hellblazer comic series, had some success in cinemas at the time by collecting more than 200 million dollars at the worldwide box office. Keanu Reeves played John Constantine, a medium and demon hunter who prevents his last from crossing the border between hell and our world. Saved in extremis by God for some obscure reason, the exorcist found himself caught in a war between the archangel Gabriel (Tilda Swinton) and Lucifer (Peter Stormare), the lord of the damned. The film ended with an open ending (and without a cigarette), although it took almost 17 years to discover a potential sequel. By the way, Warner Bros. has confirmed that the start of construction of Constantine 2 sends back to the cemetery the series reboot dedicated to the character, which was to be released soon on its HBO Max platform. We do not yet know if the feature film will be part of a darker and occult DC universe, while JJ Abrams is currently working on a Justice League Dark series, where we should meet characters like Swamp Thing, Madame Xanadu, Shade, Zatanna or even Deadman, in addition to John Constantine who is a key figure in the team. In France, the film Constantine is available on Netflix until September 30.
