DC Comics’ Constantine In Development at NBC TV From David Goyer
John Constantine is a character in DC Comics that first appeared in 1985 in the Saga of Swamp Thing and was created by comic legend Alan Moore. Keanu Reeves portrayed this character in the 2005 movie Constantine. Now Contantine is making his jump to the silver screen and will be written/executive produced by The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone and David Goyer. Goyer is well known already for Warner Bros.’ feature DC adaptations such as The Dark Knight Trilogy with Christopher Nolan. Constantine centers on John Constantine, an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond.
According to Deadline, “Constantine joins Warner Bros. TV/DC’s The Flash at the CW, a spinoff from hitArrow, and a Gotham City/Commissioner Gordon drama at Fox, which has a series commitment. WME-repped Goyer has co-written The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman Begins, Man Of Steel and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman. On TV, he is the creator/executive producer of Starz’s Da Vinci’s Demons. WME-repped Cerone is the creator/executive producer of Canadian drama Motive, which aired on ABC this summer and is awaiting a second-season renewal.”
