The live action adaptation of DC Comic's "Constantine" has finally found the man to direct the pilot. Deadline reports that Neil Marshall, known for "Doomsday" and "The Descent," will be taking the helm of NBC's upcoming project. Marshall most recently directed the opening sequence and third episode for Michael Bay's pirate drama "Black Sails" on Starz, and is set to direct an episode of the new season of "Game of Thrones."

For those unfamiliar with the title, "Constantine" centers on John Constantine, an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond. The pilot will be written by Daniel Cerone, who penned the original story with David S. Goyer.

Currently there is no word on when the show will air, but we will keep you posted!
