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."
(So did ticketbuyers, Shia. So did ticketbuyers.)
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."
