Is special effects guru Stan Winston really working on the
“Constantine” movie, or is he just confused? It’s hard to tell based
on a recent interview he did with MovieHole.
While the interview focused on Winston’s recent production “Wrong

“Right now, I’m in the middle of working on a wonderful movie over at
Columbia – with Laura Ziskin, who did ‘Spider-Man,’ called ‘Constantine,’
based on a comic called ‘Hellblazer.’ I can’t say too much, because of a
confidentially agreement I have with them, but the script is wonderful and we’re
working on some great character designs for it,” Winston told Moviehole.

Warner Bros, not Columbia. Producing the movie is Lauren Shuler-Donner
(“X2”) and not Laura Ziskin.

“League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” director Stephen Norrington has

the film was back in development and no new director had been attached.
