Rumour has Guillermo Del Toro direct a Vertigo team up flick

According to Latino Review, Guillermo del Toro is in talks with Warner Bros to create his own version of that team up, called Heaven Sent. The movie would include the characters Swamp Thing, Constantine, Deadman, The Spectre, Zatanna and Zatarra, The Phantom Stranger, Sargon and Etrigan The Demon - essentially the line-up of [Swamp Thing] #50.

That seems like a lot of characters to pack into one movie.
How do you explain each character within the allotted timeframe, and then have an actual plot?

You know, if they could get John right, fuck all those other characters, but if they use Keanu again, then fuck Del Torro. John Constantine is the deal make or breaker there for me.

Of course, he'll get it on with Zee. The only way they get Keanu back is if Akiva Goldsman's involve but these days the brothers Nolan are the WB's new Golden Children.

But after Constanteen, I never thought there would be another chance to see John in the cinema. I just hope they don't follow the "established character" route based on the movie and go with another retarded American brunette. They need to get him right this time. I just don't imagine this will ever get a green light. CGI Swampy could be cool as shit though.

or whatever they call it. i wonder what they refer to it as if it doesn't have a working title yet, while it's in development?

I was refering to Keanusteen. That's the title intended. Necro IS Keanusteen!!

Surely Heaven Sent is just the working title, like Blue Harvest or Codename Galactica.

I don't remember, but was that what the group was called in the Swamp Thing comic? It might have been.

I’ve been discussing with the fans and I’ve been very, very open about how much Swamp Thing was key when I was a kid. Comics in Mexico came on the first two days of the week. Around Tuesday and Wednesday I would go to the newsstand on my bicycle and I would get Swamp Thing every time it was available and I loved Jack Kirby’s Demon. I love Constantine and all that. You know, I’ve been pursuing doing something with them for many, many years. Hopefully it’ll come to pass. But we are still just discussing.”

So, to cheer us up, it's Casting Thread Time !!!

Match the following to their JLD counterpart

Ron Perlman
Selma Blair
Doug Jones
John Hurt
Luke Goss

But seriously, Del Toro with Perlman as Swamp Thing is a good start.

Hopefully, we might get Idris Elba as Chas. Or Phantom Stranger. Or John Constantine.
Rule #1 to posting on this forum - don't take anything Rogan says personally, or seriously for that matter!
- John McMahon, Forum High Priest and "The Green Mountain Boy"

Anyway, this is a wonderful series, and I'm eternally in Rogan's debt for bringing it to my attention.
