It’s been over three months since we’ve received any updates regarding the “Constantine” TV adaptation to be hosted by NBC. Tvguide.com reports that the network has moved forward with the small-screen adaptation based on the character created by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and Jamie Delano.
dc.wikia.com gives us a little more insight about the character, John Constantine:
“John Constantine is an occult detective and professional sorcerer from Liverpool, England. His gritty and brutal attitude makes him recognizable as a cynical, foul-mouthed, chain-smoking anti-hero. Because of his former status as a Vertigo Universe character, he appeared exclusively in his own series Hellblazer for many years during which he aged in real time. He has been a member of Justice League Dark, the Newcastle Crew and the Trenchcoat Brigade. In addition, he has also acted as a supernatural advisor and ally to the Swamp Thing. John Constantine was created by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and John Totleben, first appearing in Saga of the Swamp Thing #37. (1985)”
“Batman Begins” scribe David S. Goyer will be responsible for writing the script with “The Mentalist” executive producer Daniel Cerone. Goyer and Cerone will also serve as executive producers.
