E! Online has a bit up with word from the Constantine set…
Speaking of Djimon Hounsou: And who isn’t speaking of Hounsou this awards season? He joins Shia LaBeouf, Tilda Swinton and Keanu Reeves in Constantine, which may well be Reeves’ last picture. Why? Because by the time the supernatural thriller hits theaters next year, Reeves could have pocketed as much as $300 million (in salary and points) from his work on the Matrix trilogy. But money isn’t everything. Word from the set, whispered by the special effects department, headed by Stan Winston, says the team has outdone itself. I think someone told me, “These things kick ass!” or something to that effect.
Apparently, first-time director Francis Lawrence gave the Constantine team complete freedom in bringing the nasty characters of the dark comic book Hellblazer to life, and they pushed the envelope at every turn. Even Winston people think this is some of their best and most frightening work in years. I hear they’re particularly proud of the devil’s son, one of many creatures in Reeves’ hell–but if I say any more, I’ll need to be reanimated myself.
Sounds cool, stay tuned for lots more on Constantine at The Hype! soon.
