Bullock's! No on Constantine 2?

Sandra Bullock advised her Lake House co-star Keanu Reeves to forgo any sequel to his supernatural thriller film Constantine in front of a roomful of reporters. During a press conference to promote their upcoming time-travel romantic movie, Bullock said with surprising candor: "No, no to sequels! Don't do Constantine 2" after Reeves was asked if he is doing a sequel. "Look, you never called to say, 'Don't do it.' You never called," she added, referring to her ill-fated sequel Speed 2, in which Reeves declined to appear.

Reeves turned down the sequel to the 1994 blockbuster hit Speed, which first paired Bullock with Reeves, and it bombed. Bullock teamed up with Jason Patric for Speed 2: Cruise Control. "Yeah, Keanu was smart then," she said. "He had good people surrounding him at the time going, 'Don't do it. Don't get on a boat going 10 knots, which looks like it's pretty much standing still.'"

As far as a sequel to Constantine, which was based on the dark comic book Hellblazer, Reeves said, "It's kind of [up] in the air. Maybe. Maybe. I would like to, but I don't know if the producers want to do it." Reeves added that it's a long story why the sequel is being delayed. "We have to figure it out," he said. "I don't know."

Bullock said, "If you do a sequel, you should have him quit smoking."

Reeves retorted, "He did in the first one, if you saw it."
