Sweet on Swinton
Tilda Swinton, Orlando's gender-shifter and The Deep End's avenging mama, is set to join the cast of Constantine, a big-budget Keanu Reeves action movie based on the DC-Vertigo comic book Hellblazer.
Why, you ask, did they change the name to something that sounds like a wig-and-corset flick? Maybe the original title was too close for comfort to the schlock Hellraiser.
Reeves plays Constantine, an occult-obsessed man who joins forces with a female police officer (Rachel Weisz) to kick evildoer ass. Swinton's character is a rogue angel named Gabriel whose job is to kick back.
The movie's in preproduction now, so you have a while to wait. But you can bet that the über-cool Swinton will have us all rooting for the dark side to win.
