Constantine 2 Exclusive

Producer discusses sequel, plus some Beverly Hills Cop 4 news.

by Chris Tilly

During a recent interview with blockbuster maestro Lorenzo di Bonaventura, IGN fired some questions at him about Constantine 2, sequel to the 2005 comic book adaptation about a cynical detective who deals with the supernatural.

And it seems that the producer is dead keen on the project. "I'd love to do it" he revealed. "We want to do a hard, R-rated version of it. We're going to scale back the size of the movie to try and persuade the studio to go ahead and make a tough version of it."

Di Bonaventura added that he hoped to retain director Francis Lawrence and star Keanu Reeves, and when asked if Constantine would remain a brunette or go blonde - as in the comics - he claimed there was a chance.

"You know what? James Bond went blonde, so maybe Constantine. I always find it find that people get that impassionate about a hair colour. We had that experience with The Baroness on G.I. Joe. Sometimes it's part of your character, but it never really strikes me as part of Constantine's character. It's really up to Keanu more than anything. It doesn't seem important to me, but I know it's important to some of the fans."

However when quizzed about the potential for a Beverly Hills Cop 4, to which di Bonaventura had previously been attached, he revealed that the project is probably dead in the water.

Look out for IGN's full interview with the producer, in which he discusses the past, present and future of the G.I. Joe franchise, on IGN in a couple of weeks.

 ... get past this 'blonde' thing already ? thank you very much.
what's important is the atmosphere and the attitude, not a hair color.
they better get the script 'color' right, though. * looks menacing*

I think the pictures were taken some time ago; they were taken around early-mid 2008, I think.
