Keanu Reeves To Return For CONSTANTINE Sequel

After years of speculation, it's finally official: Warner Bros. recently confirmed they are re-teaming with Constantine star Keanu Reeves and director Francis Lawrence for a sequel to the 2005 supernatural thriller.

Reeves will reprise his role as the DC anti-hero John Constantine, a supernatural exorcist and demonologist who possesses the ability to perceive and communicate with half-angels and half-demons in their true forms, and to travel between Earth and Hell. In the original film, he is dying from lunch cancer, yet continues to fight to keep demons from breaching earth, in the hopes his soul might be redeemed.

Akiva Goldsman will write the screenplay and is also aboard to produce via his Weed Road Picture, alongside Bad Robot's J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella.

We don't know too much about this project yet, but we do recall Lawrence (way back in 2011, mind you) musing that for a potential sequel, "it would be great to do the really dark, scary version. [With Constantine] we got caught in that weird PG-13-R no man's land, and we should do the hard-R scary version, which I would love to do." Fingers crossed for a gnarly take on the demon-battling cynic.

No word yet on when production might begin on this Constantine sequel, but stay tuned for more information as we hear it.
