Constantine heads to TV

A quick hit for you on this Friday morn, popular DC Comics character John Constantine will once again leap off the comic page, this time as a TV series for NBC

Episodes will follow the exploits of a reformed criminal trying to buy his way back into heaven by sending meddling demons straight to hell. No word yet on who will play Constantine, but the series will be navigated by screenwriter David S. Goyer ( Batman Begins) and The Mentalist showrunner Daniel Cerone.

I never read the comics, but am a big fan of the 2005 flick starring Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz (above). And I gotta admit, the subject matter is ripe for a series, although I'd of preferred Constantine found a home at HBO or AMC.
