Warner Brothers has resurrected DC Comics' 2005 supernatural thriller Constantine for a sequel, reuniting original director Francis Lawrence and lead actor Keanu Reeves.

Deadline reports that the film's screenplay will be helmed by Akiva Goldsman, who will also produce alongside J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella of Bad Robot Productions. Lorenzo DiBonaventura and Erwin Stoff are set to executive produce.

Last year, Reeves hinted that he would be interested in reviving his character, telling Esquire, "I love playing Constantine. John Constantine. I've played a lot of Johns. How many Johns have I played? I don't even know. I think it's over ten. But anyway, I'd love to have the chance to play Constantine again."

So far, no word on whether any of the original film's other cast members — including Rachel Weisz, Shia LaBeouf and Tilda Swinton — will be involved in the project.

HBO Max very recently axed Abrams's in-the-works series adaption of Constantine, which had also found a home through Bad Robot.
