Reeves Buries Constantine

Shame on you!!!Bad news came down this weekend for anyone who was looking forward to a follow-up to “>Constantine (review), the big screen adaptation of DC/Vertigo’s “Hellblazer” comic. Well, it’s bad news for people who wanted to see Keanu Reeves in the lead role at least.

IESB was in attendance at a Street Kings junket and asked the Mr. Reeves if he’d be appearing in a sequel to 2005’s Constantine. He responded that “despite planning it at one time, a second go-round as John Constantine wasn’t something he’d be interested in doing anymore.

Luckily a sequel really doesn’t depend on Reeves, and there are plenty of other actors who could easily fill the role of John Constantine … and maybe for the better.

    Yeah, Bettany’s a great choice, too. I just thought Laurie was perfect for Constantine’s black wit.

    Hugh Laurie are you mad? Paul Bettany.

    Sounds like they talked to Reeves’ publicist instead of to Ol Chief Woodenhead himself.

    If they do make a sequel, it’s time to do what they should have done before and hire Hugh Laurie as Constantine.

    Constantine is a guilty pleasure, but I would prefer a reboot with something a bit more faithful to the source material.

    Who needs a sequel?

    What we need is a reboot with a better creative team. While Tilda Swinton and Peter Stormare were fantastic, the rest of the first movie was mediocrity personified.

    I say try a FAITHFUL adaptation. What a concept.
