On Friday, Mike Fleming of Deadline exclusively revealed that a sequel to 2005’s Constantine is in the work at Warner Bros. That alone would likely be enough to get folks excited, but the news got even better when Fleming revealed that Keanu Reeves would be reprising his role as the title character.
Fleming’s report went on to state that Francis Lawrence will return to direct, as well. The film will be based on a screenplay written by Akiva Goldsman, who will also produce the movie alongside J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella.
Many of us never thought a sequel would be made, especially after Reeves, Fleming, and Goldsman spent part of a 2020 Comic-Con panel about the film explaining why it never happened.
While the part about heavily religious movies being a risk still hasn’t changed, John Constantine the character is much better known than he was just 17 years ago. Add in Keanu Reeves’ involvement, and the sequel film is likely to make a much larger profit for Warner Bros. than the original did.
No casting news or release date info has been shared yet, but that should begin leaking out some time early next year.
