Adaptation Of DC Comics’ Constantine From Daniel Cerone & David Goyer Lands At NBC
By NELLIE ANDREEVA

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros. TV and DC Comics are on a roll this development season with a third high-profile project. Constantine, a drama based on the characters in DC Comics’ John Constantine stories, has sold to NBC with penalty. It is written/executive produced by The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer, the go-to writer for Warner Bros.’ feature DC adaptations. 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.

The character, which first appeared in 1985 as a recurring character in the horror series The Saga Of The Swamp Thing, was created by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and Jamie Delano. He was portrayed by Keanu Reeves in the 2005 feature Constantine and is rumored to be featured in the Justice League Dark feature Warner Bros. has in the works with Guillermo del Toro.

Constantine joins Warner Bros. TV/DC’s The Flash at the CW, a spinoff from hit Arrow, 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.

AMC or HBO ?

I would not be able to hold my excitement.

NBC ?

Sorry pals, my expectations are "Arrow" level, and that show is terrible.

What does this mean for Justice League Dark? (or whatever Guillermo Del Toro's project was called)

anyway NBC didn't let Wonder Woman get past the pilot, so I have faith that this will only get picked up if it is good, unlike if it were on The CW who would it run for at least a whole season, even if it should never have got past pilot.

but that's the curse of wonder woman, this is the first time a hellblazer show has been attempted.

could also be a neat tie-in to justice league dark, if the same cast was kept for that/this.

Welsh actor Matt Ryan will play the lead in NBC’s drama pilot Constantine, from Warner Bros TV. Based on the characters in DC Comics’ John Constantine stories, Constantine centers on John Constantine (Ryan), an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond. John Constantine is described as a working class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blonde hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who has been studying the dark arts since he was a teenager. When the daughter of a late friend, is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her. The project was written by Daniel Cerone from a story by him and David S. Goyer, the go-to writer for Warner Bros.’ feature DC adaptations who has co-penned The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman Begins, Man Of Steel and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman...

that's because it describes Constantine and not the Keanu Reeves, meaning they are going to shape the actor to fit the character, not force the character to fit the actor.

Truth be told Supernatural always took it´s hints from Hellblazer and the likes of it.Heck. Kripke already admited that the visual inspiration for Castiel was Constantine.
