Constantine as a TV series? I’m down for that. Neil Marshall, director of the Blackwater episode of Game of Thrones and also the movie The Descent, is going to direct the pilot? Yeah, I definitely must watch!
Deadline reports that Marshall will direct the series’ pilot episode. It was written by Daniel Cerone off of a story penned by Cerone and David S. Goyer.
Marshall has made his stamp as one of the best action TV directors in Hollywood. From “Blackwater,” which features “Game of Thrones'” biggest battle sequence, to the first and third episodes of Starz’s “Black Sails,” Marshall has proven time and again that he can make the small screen as exciting as a movie. What this move seems to mean is that NBC is planning to have “Constantine” at least start with a bang in its series premiere.
