Keanu Reeves plays John Constantine in Warner Bros. Pictures’ Constantine, the big screen adaptation of the “Hellblazer” graphic novels. The anticipated film, directed by Francis Lawrence, also stars Rachel Weisz, Tilda Swinton, Gavin Rossdale, Djimon Hounsou, Shia LaBeouf, and Peter Stormare.
ComingSoon.net/SuperheroHype.com asked Reeves if he thinks there will be a sequel. “You know, my contract didn’t have a second film, but myself and some of the producers and Francis Lawrence, the director, and I certainly would… because we fell in love with the guy. I fell in love with the guy,” said Reeves. “I had one of the best times I’d ever had working on a film working on this particular project. So, we would talk about what could we do? What happens to Constantine? He’s a heroin addict in Morocco. He’s got a spell, he’s killing people and he’s trying not to kill people so he’s knocking himself out. Then Akiva Goldsman was like, ‘No, he wants to stop Revelations.’ So we would do these kinds of things and ultimately it is up to the audience because that would mean that the studio would have resources to go forward with it. But I would love to play Constantine again as long as I worked with the same people. I mean, definitely Francis Lawrence and Akiva Goldsman and everyone involved in this project because I could not imagine doing this with not everyone involved. But I love playing the guy.”
Reeves recently starred in “The Matrix” trilogy, so what about a “Constantine” trilogy? “Trilogy, why stop there? We could have ‘Son of Constantine’. And I’ll play him too. CGI. No, but it’s a character just as how it exists in the graphic novel, so I would love to play him again. Who knows? I mean, February 18th, probably by the 30th we’ll know. But also, I’m sure Francis Lawrence after this film, because he did such a remarkable job, we’re not going to be able to hire that guy. He’s gone. He’s gone.”
Constantine opens in theaters on February 18th. ComingSoon.net/SuperheroHype.com and Warner Bros. have also teamed-up to give away prizes from the movie. To sign up for the contest, just click here.
