Following the continued success of John Wick and the long-awaited Matrix Resurrections last year, Keanu Reeves is set to reprise his role as John Constantine in a sequel to Constantine, directed by Francis Lawrence. According to Deadline, Lawrence is also set to return as director, with Akiva Goldsman writing the script.

This isn't the first time that news about a Constantine sequel has been in the headlines. Last year, reports suggested that HBO Max is considering a sequel series, which appears to have evolved into this newly announced sequel film. Two years ago, Collider celebrated Constantine's 15th anniversary with an interview with Reeves, Lawrence, and Goldsman where they discussed some of their original ideas. It will be interesting to see if any of those ideas come into play.

Constantine was released seventeen years ago, and despite its box office success, sequel plans never really surfaced for the film. The original cast included Reeves, Rachel Weisz, Shia LaBeouf, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Djimon Hounsou, and Gavin Rossdale. At this time, it is unclear if any of the actors will reprise their roles, although given where the first film ended there is plenty of room for them to reprise their roles.

After being first introduced by DC Comics, John Constantine has taken many forms. Most recently, Jenna Coleman played the gender-flipped character in Neil Gaiman's The Sandman for Netflix, with Matt Ryan playing the chain-smoking anti-hero in the Arrowverse. At this time, it's unclear if this Constantine sequel will bring an end to the other Abrams-back Constantine project that was reported to be starring Sope Dirisu.

Reeves is keeping him occupied and busy with John Wick 4's return to the silver screen next year as he prepares to direct Hulu's adaptation of The Devil in the White City. Check out our interview with Reeves where he discusses his upcomingBRZRKR projects.
