‘Constantine 2’ Director Pushing for a Hard R Rating for the Sequel

If Constantine 2 director Francis Lawrence has his method, the sequel can be extra violent and gory than the primary. I’m all for this.

The 2005 adaptation isn’t essentially the most trustworthy, however it was a success on the field workplace and has a loyal fan base practically twenty years later. Even if Reeves isn’t your good occult detective, it’s exhausting to disclaim that the remainder of the forged and the film’s look is implausible. The name for a sequel has been on the market for years and it was lastly heard.


Constantine 2 Director Talks

Constantine 2 will reunite Keanu Reeves and director Francis Lawrence. No information on the plot or if we’ll be seeing extra of the primary film’s forged – like Rachel Weisz, Tilda Swinton, or Peter Stormare. It’s nonetheless a bit early. The director has shared extra particulars in regards to the mission for the reason that announcement dropped, together with that he needs to do an precise R-rated film this time. He advised TheWrap

“One of the biggest things for me about the first one was we followed, per Warner Bros., the rules to make a PG-13 movie in terms of violence, blood, language, sexuality. But the ratings board gave us a hard R based on their the gray zone of intensity. And my big, big regret was that we have an R-rated movie that’s really a PG-13 movie. And if I was going to have to have an R, I would have really made an R-rated movie. I would have made it much scarier and much more violent, and I would have really made an R-rated movie.”

Loads has modified within the seventeen years since Constantine hit theaters – particularly for comedian e-book films that have been as soon as seen as being for simply youngsters and households. Deadpool made financial institution on the field workplace with an R-rating – twice. Audiences clamor for violent franchises like John Wick, and horror films have taken over the field workplace. It’s a great time for John Constantine to return – and there are loads of tales to be discovered within the 300+ problems with Hellblazer.

A Sequel Was Always within the Works

Seventeen years is a very long time to attend for a sequel. In an interview with Collider, Lawrence spoke about why this has taken so lengthy to get off the bottom.

“It’s something that we’ve been talking about since we made Constantine because we all loved it. So we’ve been talking about it, talking about it, talking about it. All the DC [properties], because Vertigo is part of DC, that sort of like the control of those properties got complicated with Warner Bros. with DC, with JJ [Abrams]’s deal, you know, all those kinds of things. There’s a lot of complicating factors. So it was never Akiva [Goldman], and Keanu, and I happen to be sort of convinced to do it. It was really trying to figure out how we can get some sort of control over the Constantine character again.”

Let’s hope the lengthy hole doesn’t result in one thing much like The Matrix Resurrections (no, I used to be not too keen on it – sure, I’m glad you probably did), although. I’d quite don’t have anything.
