‘Constantine’: Keanu Reeves Will Return For A Belated Sequel, Francis Lawrence Directing Again

The DC-related supernatural property “Constantine” has been in the air for the last two years.

 Whispers of a belated sequel with Keanu Reeves were bandied about at one point and then seemingly squashed in 2021 when Reeves was

asked by reporters and said he “would love to” make a “Constantine” sequel,

 but the studios weren’t interested. Instead, Warner Bros. and HBO Max went ahead with a “Constantine” series from J.J.

Abrams’ Bad Robot productions that was supposed to kick off an interconnected world of supernatural DC projects like “Justice League Dark,” but none of those projects have yet come to fruition.

Well, with the streaming world in turmoil and HBO Max seemingly dialing back heavily on the barrage of content they once promised, Warner Bros.

 is now shifting back to “Constantine” as a movie, and it’s bringing back Reeves.

 Yep, 17 years after “Constantine” first came out in 2005, Reeves is returning to play the title role in a sequel directed once again by filmmaker Francis Lawrence who went on to have great success with the “Hunger Games.”
