Constantine (Hellblazer)

Ryan Downey of recently chatted up "The One" himself, Keanu Reeves, who last week re-asserted himself as the big-screen's #1 superhero in "The Matrix: Reloaded."

Downey got the actor to spill the beans on "Constantine," the movie version of DC/Vertigo's popular "John Constantine: Hellblazer" comic. Reeves is attached to star as an Americanized version of the character.

Of course, playing the caustic sorcerer will be a sharp contrast to the Matrix's soft spoken and often-confused Neo. Reeves told MTV he was drawn to the part by the characters edge.

"[It's] his anger. He's angry, but he's got a good heart," Reeves told MTV.

According to the report, "Constantine" is due in theaters next summer. Reeves first has to complete an untitled project with writer/director Nancy Meyers ("What Women Want").
