I loved Constantine, at the time I felt I was the only person that did but it seems I am not alone as producer Lauren Shuler Donner let the cat out of the bag this weekend during the Unaccompanied Minors press junket to let us know that a Constantine 2 is planned and is currently out to a director. This bit of news is very exciting to those who liked the first one and considering I am a major fan consider me excited.
Are we ever going to see a sequel to Constantine?
Yes, you might, you might.
Yes, with Keanu. We have been working with a team of writers for a story and yes, we will…
What can we look forward to in the sequel?
The area that we found is great…it’s really scary, it’s goodâ€¦ We are really going to go for it, it will be a hard ‘R’ and Keanu [Reeves] will be in it.
Will you be taking it to London?
No, another country though, you’re right, it’s outside of America.
No, different director, but Francis [Lawrence] will produce it with us. We will try to maintain his vision.
[Frances Lawrence] wouldn’t be being asked for Wolverine?
Yes, we would love him for Wolverine but he won’t be available.
More to come as soon as I have time to transcribe the whole story which includes more on Constantine, Wolverine, Young Magneto and uh… a little more… maybe… Bryan Singer?
