Please good god no...

News on the Hellblazer film just gets worse and worse.
http://www.superherohype.com/cgi-bin/news/constantine.cgi?newsid1050550624,68787,

I'd started sticking my fingers in my ears about this La La La, about the time they had supposedly cast Nicolas Cage for the part. I wish I'd kept them in.

John Constantine is one of the reasons I started reading comics. He's Liverpudian for god's sake!

I refuse to see this film.

so there

I had a similar conniption fit when I first heard this news. John Constantine is my favorite comic book character by far, and it kills me to see him getting treated so shoddily.

I refuse to see this film.

I'll probably see it anyway. I'm weak.

Third try...

Congrats on being the first person to comment in this journal, thought I was babbling into the void for a bit there.

I don't know why they bother to call it Constantine if they strip it of all the things that made JC so appealing in the first place. No fault of Mr Reeves, he can stand in the corner looking pretty anytime he pleases, just keep him and his abysmal acting away from JC (and Shakepeare for that matter).

Think, what if he attempts the accent? ::shiver::

I live in fear of the day he attempts the accent. But I heard that they're setting it in New York and making John Constantine an American. I don't know why they're bothering to call it Constantine, either.

I heard that too actually, but the memory of that accent in Bram Stoker's Dracula will stay with me a very long time.

It just so rare to hear an American actor do a decent english accent, one of the reasons I love JM (even though he wobbles a bit at times and has done a different accent each season).

Does it work in reverse though? I thought Tim Roth does good accent work, but I'm not going to be a good judge of that.

That movie horrifies me. Not because of any of the vampire stuff, but because of that accent. And Gary Oldman's hair.

I think you hear Americans doing bad British accents far more often than you hear Brits doing bad American accents, I'm afraid. Don't know why. Probably because Hollywood is full of itself.

I have a friend who loved Gary Oldman in that, but she thought Tim Curry was attractive in the Rocky Horror so she's hardly a lady of taste.

Bogwitch

My mom rather fancies Gary Oldman in that, too, but the later stuff, when he comes to London. What's scarred me is his Transylvania hair - you know, up on top of his head, looking like nothing more than a pair of breasts? ::shudder::

I think it must be the later stuff too.

Breast hair, now there's a thing.
