IESB.net was on hand at the Unaccompanied Minors press day in Los Angeles, where producer Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men Series) gave some updates and announcements about Constantine 2. Keanu Reeves will be back, but the previous director, Francis Lawrence, will not be directing, only producing. From their report:
IESB: Are we ever going to see a sequel to Constantine?
LSD: Yes, with Keanu [Reeves]. We have been working with a team of writers for a story and yes, we will. We are really going to go for it, it will be a hard 'R' and Keanu will be in it. The area that we found is great-it will be outside of America. It will be a different director but Francis [Lawrence] will produce it, we will maintain his vision.
Sounds pretty good to me. The first Constantine is by far not my favorite comic book movie, but I thought it was a very visionary creation, and I'm glad they'll be making a second one as the first one definitely left some doors open for sequels. No updates on when pre-production will start yet.
