“Is that a sequel?”
Constantine is a prime example of an R-rated comic book movie that almost nailed it but stumbled into an abyss of mediocrity. Like Hellboy, which wasn’t too great either but had an equally killer premise lingering in the dark side, Constantine could actually benefit from a sequel. Unlike Hellboy, which has a very cool-looking sequel at bat this summer (speaking of which, it’s rather quiet, no?), Constantine‘s title star Keanu Reeves says a once rumored second installment to the Hellblazer Vertigo comics series, Constantine 2, isn’t going to happen. The original film’s director, Francis Lawrence, has been pretty vocal about his desire to do a sequel since its release in 2005, and you may recall that Lawrence just had a megaton hit on his hands with I Am Legend.
Reeves, who is currently talking up his December 2009 sci-fi remake epic The Day the Earth Stood Still, went on to tell IESB that he sees no sequels in his future. So, not only can you ixnay an ideal Bill & Ted’s reunion, but those hoping for a cameo by a certain agent Johnny Utah in Peter Iliff’s Point Break 2 (which is presumably still on for 2009 in lieu of Patrick Swayze’s cancer diagnosis), should take a deep, enjoyable sniff off some Mr. Zog’s Sex Wax and get real. As always, Slashfilm will keep you updated as the World of Keanu spins round and round.
Discuss: Constantine 2, was there something there? Point Break 2 without Keanu? Worth a watch? Would you watch Bill’s Journey?
