DC TV Takeover Continues: David Goyer And Daniel Cerone Working On A Constantine Series
DC is on a role with comic book related TV shows. Arrow is about to start it’s second season, Flash could get a spinoff series out of it if things go well, and Jim Gordon/Gotham police show was just ordered by Fox. Now John Constantine is trying to make the jump from page to small screen. Deadline is reporting that The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone and Man of Steel screenwriter David Goyer are working on a drama based on the one-time Vertigo Hellblazer and now DC New 52 star for NBC.
According to Deadline, the series has sold to NBC with penalty. Cerone will write and executive produce the series with Goyer lending his hand to the project as well. Seems the writer is becoming DC‘s go-to man for all things comic book movies and television. Other details are obviously scarce at this time, but we’ll be hearing a lot more about this and all the other DC TV projects very soon. The show will focus on Constantine, the con man turned supernatural detective, who faces off against all manner of creepy and spooky. Constaine was said to be part of Guillermo Del Toro‘s Justice League Dark movie, so it remains to be seen how or if this will effect that project. What do you think about everyone’s favorite chain-smoking bad boy possibly getting his own show?
