Based on an adaptation of the DC-Vertigo comic book “Hellblazer,” the film stars Keanu Reeves with Rachel Weisz and Tilda Swinton. Set in the occult world, the film centers on John Constantine (Reeves), a man who dabbles in the occult and teams with a female police officer (Weisz) to fight evil forces.

Rossdale will play Balthazar, a nemesis of Reeves’ character, while Hounsou will star as Papa Midnite, the owner of an occult club who was once a demon fighter like Constantine but is now trying to get out of the business.
