Genre fav Neil Marshall, best known for Dog Soldiers, The Descent and Doomsday, is set to direct NBC’s drama pilot “Constantine,” from Warner Bros TV, reports Deadline.
Based on the characters in DC Comics’ John Constantine stories, “‘Constantine’ centers on John Constantine, an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond.”
The project was written by Daniel Cerone from a story by him and David S. Goyer.
In TV, Marshall recently helmed the opening as well as the third episode of Michael Bay’s Starz pirate drama “Black Sails” and an episode from the upcoming fourth season of HBO’s “Game Of Thrones.”
