E! Online gets inside the "Constantine" set, and has a great deal to say. Entertainment gossip Anderson Jones said, "Who isn't speaking of Hounsou this awards season? He joins Shia LaBeouf, Tilda Swinton and Keanu Reeves in 'Constantine,' which may well be Reeves' last picture. Why? Because by the time the supernatural thriller hits theaters next year, Reeves could have pocketed as much as $300 million (in salary and points) from his work on the 'Matrix' trilogy. But money isn't everything. Word from the set, whispered by the special effects department, headed by Stan Winston, says the team has outdone itself. I think someone told me, 'These things kick ass!' or something to that effect. Apparently, first-time director Francis Lawrence gave the 'Constantine' team complete freedom in bringing the nasty characters of the dark comic book 'Hellblazer' to life, and they pushed the envelope at every turn. Even Winston people think this is some of their best and most frightening work in years. I hear they're particularly proud of the devil's son, one of many creatures in Reeves' hell -- but if I say any more, I'll need to be reanimated myself!"
