UPDATED: Rossdale, Hounsou and LaBeouf go to Hellblazer

BUSH lead-singer Gavin Rossdale,"LARA CROFT: THE CRADLE OF LIFE" star Djimon Hounsou, and "HOLES" star Shia LaBeouf set to join Keanu Reeves in CONSTANTINE, an adaption of DC-Comic's HELLBLAZER.
The Hollywood Reporter has fresh casting information on the forthcoming Keanu Reeves pic CONSTANTINE, based on the DC-Vertigo comic book HELLBLAZER:

"Gavin Rossdale and Djimon Hounsou are poised to join Warner Bros. Pictures' "Constantine" for helmer Francis Lawrence...the film is toplined by Keanu Reeves along with Rachel Weisz and Tilda Swinton. Set in the occult world, the film centers on John Constantine (Reeves), a man who dabbles in the occult and teams with a female police officer (Weisz) to fight evil forces. Rossdale will play Balthazar, a nemesis of Reeves' character, while Hounsou will star as Papa Midnite, the owner of an occult club who was once a demon fighter like Constantine but is now trying to get out of the business. (Chris Gardner)"

Late in the day Production Weekly (www.productionweekly.com) reported that Shia LaBeouf, current "it boy" in Hollywood thanks to HOLES and THE BATTLE OF SHAKER HEIGHTS, has been cast as Chaz, a sidekick to Constantine.

And with Batman:Intimidation being prepped for a February 2004 start date, may I suggest Gwen Stefani as Harley Quinn? Just a thought.
