Keanu Reeves could be back as one of his cult characters

The sequel to Constantine (2005) with Keanu Reeves could finally see the light of day under the leadership of the same director Francis Lawrence. In any case, the actor fights for.

Initially, John Constantine, the detective-exorcist-hunter of demons, is the anti-hero of the comic book Hellblazer published by DC Comics. This was followed by an adaptation directed by Francis Lawrence (I am a legend) with Keanu Reeves, released in 2005 at the cinema and strong of 230 million dollars in revenue. A great success despite everything weighed down by a budget of between 70 and 90 million dollars, which did not encourage the producers to immediately launch a sequel.

A dream for Keanu

But things could change. Warner recently announced that its teams have begun work on a sequel project. And Keanu Reeves, questioned on the subject, to answer: “It's exciting. It's almost like an open playground in which we can hopefully, if the preparation is good, play at will. I can't wait to be there and I hope it happens. You never know how things can turn out in this environment. But I will do my best to make this dream come true”.

What is certain is that Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek Picard) is back on the script and that JJ Abrams and Hannah Minghella are producing. It still smells pretty good.
