It’s been more than 17 years since the release of Constantine, but a sequel is finally coming our way! Warner Bros is developing a sequel to the 2005 horror-thriller—and yes, Keanu Reeves is returning!
“Reeves will reprise as supernatural exorcist and demonologist John Constantine, who in the original is dying but stays around to save his soul by keeping demons from hell from breaching earth,” Deadline explains. “He also gets between a battle between the archangel Gabriel and Lucifer.”
Director Francis Lawrence is also returning for Constantine 2, which will be written and produced by Akiva Goldsman (The Dark Tower). Bad Robot’s J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella will also produce. Executive producers include Lorenzo DiBonaventura and Erwin Stoff.
The character of John Constantine first appeared in DC Comics’ Swamp Thing in 1985 before getting his own comic book series, Hellblazer, in 1988.
