Tilda Swinton is in negotiations to join the cast of Warner Bros. Pictures' "Constantine," the studio has confirmed. The project, based on an adaptation of the DC-Vertigo comic book "Hellblazer," will be directed by Francis Lawrence. "Hellblazer" is described as "Dirty Harry" set in the occult world. Reeves will star as John Constantine, a man who dabbles in the occult and teams with a female police officer to fight evil forces. Rachel Weisz will play Angela, the cop who becomes involved with Constantine when her twin sister dies in a mysterious suicide. Swinton would play Gabriel, a rogue angel battling Constantine. Kevin Brodbin ("The Glimmer Man") wrote the original script, with a rewrite by Mark Bomback and Frank Cappello.
