An adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic "Preacher" has been to the pulpit a few times over the years. Sam Mendes, Darren Aronofsky and Joe Carnahan ´╗┐have all been involved and/or rumored at various points, and most recently, D.J. Caruso had talked up a version that had Chris Pine, Shia LaBeouf and Alex Pettyfer interested in the roles of Jesse, Arseface and the Saint Of Killers respectively. And before all of this, HBO had been developing a TV take on the material but wound up passing way back in 2008. But now it looks like one of their rivals is going to take a stab at it.

Preacher

An adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic "Preacher" has been to the pulpit a few times over the years. Sam Mendes, Darren Aronofsky and Joe Carnahan have all been involved and/or rumored at various points, and most recently, D.J. Caruso had talked up a version that had Chris Pine, Shia LaBeouf and Alex Pettyfer interested in the roles of Jesse, Arseface and the Saint Of Killers respectively. And before all of this, HBO had been developing a TV take on the material but wound up passing way back in 2008. But now it looks like one of their rivals is going to take a stab at it.

Rumors swirled around the interwebs over the weekend starting with Badass Digest who reported that AMC has ordered a pilot for the comic series that follows a possessed Texas preacher who teams up with a vampire on a quest to find God and hold him accountable for his negligence. And while they don't have details of who might be involved, Seth Rogen added to the chatter by tweeting: "Looks like about seven of years of hard work are about to pay off. I may get to bring one of my favourite stories ever to life. Arseface. John Wayne, The Saint of Killers." 

Meanwhile, Bleeding Cool stirred the pot a bit more by picking up on a report from a worker at Escape Pod Comics who claims that Ed CarrollChief Operating Officer of AMC walked into the store and started talking about the comic series, and bought Vol. 1. Hmm.

All this to say that it seems like something is happening with "Preacher," and we guess AMC will let everyone know officially when they feel like it.
