NBC To Try a 'Constantine' Without a Keanu
Looks like Fox's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen pilot won't be the only new television blinding Alan Moore with rage. Now NBC has reportedly started development on another of Moore's characters, with the hopes of bringing cynical magician and supernatural detective John Constantine to screens in a way that's less Keanu. The network is hoping to put him in a series now, and they have DC comics go-to adapter David Goyer and The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone working on a pilot script. It's the latest of several Warner-owned comics properties heading to television, others being Fox's aforementioned LoEG, the CW's The Flash, and the Gotham cop drama that for some reason also is being headed by a Mentalist. Also the latest that you'll wish was headed to a respected cable channel, not the network that brought you The Million Second Quiz.
