Long earlier than DC Comics had its personal cinematic universe — or Marvel had one, for that matter — Keanu Reeves starred in Constantine, based mostly on DC and Vertigo comics magical superhero. The movie wasn’t actually a success with critics — it’s acquired a 46 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — or with audiences (it grossed a so-so $230 million worldwide against a reported $100 million budget).
But then a wierd factor occurred. People fell in love with Constantine. Through the years, the film turned a cult hit, and considered one of Keanu’s hottest films. (At least amongst individuals on the web who like to discuss Keanu Reeves films, which is a specialised group, I admit.) When requested which of his films, he’d like to return to, he usually talked about Constantine — and even revealed in December of final year that he’d truly tried to get a sequel off the bottom, however that Warner Bros. wouldn’t go for it.
Well, they lastly went for it. Deadline says that Warner Bros. goes to “develop” a Constantine sequel starring Keanu Reeves, with the unique film’s director and author, Francis Lawrence and Akiva Goldsman, both concerned as director and author again.
It’s a really shocking flip of occasions, notably since only a few months in the past, Keanu was moping on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert over the fact that he couldn’t get the movie to happen. Remember of us: Never underestimate the facility of trying unhappy on the national airwaves.
No phrase on once we may see Constantine 2, however apparently — 17 years after the unique movie got here and went — it’s now within the works. What a world.
