NBC’s CONSTANTINE Pilot Finds Its Director


constantine bannerJust the other day it was revealed that The CW had officially ordered up pilots for The Flash and iZombie, and tonight news hits that NBC has found a director for their DC show. The Constantine pilot is moving right along and The Descent director Neil Marshall has been tapped to helm the pilot. Deadline revealed the news along with an update on the pilot’s writers.

Marshall has mainly been a part of the horror genre with The Descent and its sequel, but he has some recent experience in television. He directed the third episode of Michael Bay’s pirate drama on Starz, Black Sails, and he’s directing an episode for Game of Thrones fourth season. The Constantine pilot episode will be written by Daniel Cerone from a story he came up with along with DC movie super scribe David Goyer.

The series based on the chain-smoking detective of the supernatural, John Constantine, is currently looking for its cast. There is no firm date in place for filming to begin, but if things go well we could see the series on NBC toward the end of this year. Are you glad to hear that the network has already locked in their writer and director? What would you like to see from a network series based on the DC and Vertigo antihero?
