Keanu Reeves reveals character he would play again

Keanu Reeves has revealed the one character he’d love to play again if he was given the chance

Keanu Reeves has revealed the one character he’d love to play again if he was given the chance.

Reeves has previously reprised several of his most popular characters, appearing in four John Wick movies, four Matrix films and three Bill & Ted flicks.

However, while Reeves is seemingly able to carve out successful franchise after successful franchise, the Hollywood star has revealed that there’s one role he’d love to play again, but claims no one is interested. Ouch.

Reeves made the revelation during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2021, when he was asked if there was one role he’d be keen to reprise, with Colbert then warning him that once he said it ‘someone will then ask you to’ to make it.

However, Reeves was quick to shoot down that theory, telling him that simply wasn’t true and he had the proof.

“I want to play… I would love to play John Constantine again, from Constantine,” he said.

Colbert then cut in to ask if Reeves really believed that no one would be interested in creating a sequel for the flick, to which he replied: “I’ve tried. I’ve tried, Stephen."

Constantine, which was released in 2005, is loosely based upon DC’s Hellblazer comic book series.

It centres on John Constantine (played by Reeves) an exorcist who is gifted with the ability to travel between Earth and Hell and communicate with half-angels and half-demons.

His unique talents are then called upon to help prove that the death of a police officer’s sister was not a suicide.

Although the movie didn’t exactly bowl critics over - it holds a not-exactly-impressive 45 percent on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes - it was a box office success, grossing $230.9 million worldwide against a budget of around $100 million.

It also managed to gain a pretty solid cult following since its release with fans - and Reeves - very keen on a second movie.

And despite what Reeves reckons, last year it was reported that a sequel was in the works.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros had Reeves and Constantine director Francis Lawrence onboard, with Akiva Goldsman also set to write the script.

But in a disappointing update just last month, the Speed star admitted to CinemaBlend: "We're trying, I don't know if it's going to happen.”

He then added: "Hopefully I get to do it, but I don't know."

Fingers crossed, pal.
