Preacher Seth Rogen Evan Goldberg
Since this humble little blog emerged into existence, we've been reporting in fits and starts on the tortured development of "Preacher." The Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic has been through sixteen years of ever changing development, as the project has gone from being a movie, to a TV series, and back and forth, while no shortage of names both in front and behind the camera tried to get it going including Sam Mendes, Darren Aronofsky, Joe Carnahan, D.J. Caruso, Chris Pine, Shia LaBeouf and Alex Pettyfer. But now, it's actually happening for real with an unlikely duo taking it on.

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.

It was only a matter of time after director D.J. Caruso closed the deal to direct the long-gesting comic adaptation "Preacher" last month that casting rumors would begin to surface, but who would've guessed they would be coming from the director himself.

While "I Am Number Four" did decent, though not gangbusters numbers over the long holiday weekend, the results combined with the decent CinemaScore of B+ from moviegoers seem to have propelled director D.J. Caruso into his next project. The helmer hit Twitter late last night to announce, "My deal just closed on 'Preacher.' Going back to the dark side and pretty fucking pumped!"
