And setting it up for network TV...
In an interview with I Am Rogue, David Goyer spoke about the Constantine tv series and revealed that it will begin shooting this week. Here are highlights:
On the status of the series: "We start shooting next week. We only have four series regulars but we've cast them all now. I'm proud to say that Constantine is actually being played by a British guy. Matt Ryan and he is going to have blond hair."
On if Constantine will keep his habit of chain smoking: "That's a tricky one on network TV. We're negotiating right now. He will have his signature trench coat and skinny tie. I would say that the show clings more closely to the source material than the film did. Even though the film was interesting."
On more DC characters appearing: "Quite a few other characters from the comic books and possibly from the DC universe, should we move forward, will be showing upů..I think we would try to bring in some of the other occult figures."
The series stars Matt Ryan as John Constantine, Lucy Griffiths as Liv, Harold Perrineau as the angel Manny and Charles Halford as Chas. It was written by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) and Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist). The pilot will be directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones).
