LaBeouf Says "Hey, I'm in the News Again...and What's This About 'Constantine 2'?"

Jeff Giles writes: "In his continued quest to lead a news item every day this week, Shia LaBeouf tells Sci Fi Wire that he was caught off-guard by recent reports that Warner Bros. is in talks with Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz to reprise their roles in a sequel to 2005's "Constantine."
"Wow, I didn't think he would jump back on," said LaBoeuf when asked about reports that the Hollywood Reporter had spoken to Reeves about the proposed sequel. "Keanu went through a lot of s--t with that movie."
While the original's cold critical reception and brief theatrical run may not have screamed "sequel," "Constantine" did go on to gross roughly $132 million between its first-run and home video releases, and during a year in which the stars of a series of commercials for an insurance company can get a pilot deal, "Constantine 2" sounds like "Citizen Kane."
