Francis Lawrence, the director of Hunger Games, is diving into intriguing yet familiar territory with the initial script for a Constantine sequel. The 2005 film, which incorporated both supernatural and superhero elements, captivated a diverse audience. Now, there’s optimism in the air, and Lawrence is teaming up with Keanu Reeves and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman.
The film project has strayed into the DC abyss of the big picture and new things, but this isn’t the end: Lawrence and his team will get back into the swing of things and the break is just a bit of a break, but they will meet again after Thanksgiving.
In movies like The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes from 2015, Lawrence has been a master at digging deep into intricate storylines and character dynamic. This has highlighted the potential of Constantine 2 as a promising second film that will maintain the core elements of the original, while also diversifying the world of the franchise.
Based on his own experience, Lawrence shares his thoughts on the decision to create a trilogy based on the Hunger Games books, and shares thoughts on the potential consequences of dividing the novel into two films.
Constantine 2’s first few episodes are not just about making another movie; they are also about reviving a specific cinematic experience. Lawrence, Reeves, and Goldsman’s determination to bring back a story that resonates with many, underpinned by an unwavering spirit of community and support from backers, has proved a powerful motivator.
