Did someone smash a mirror or something when first talking about the big screen adaptation of the Garth Ennis comic masterpiece Preacher? It’s been seven years — seven long years — of discussion, setbacks, director courting, and a whole lot of nothing. The trend continues …
This morning Slash Film is reporting that Disturbia/Eagle Eye helmer D.J. Caruso is in talks to direct the feature film adaptation of Preacher. Apparently this is all dependent on the box office of his latest film, I Am Number Four.
For those of you not familiar with the tale (and shame on you if you’re not) Preacher follows a distressed man of the cloth named Jesse Custer who goes on a trip to literally find God after he was possessed and killed his entire congregation and destroyed his church. Custer is joined on his road trip by old flame Tulip and a hard-drinking Irish vampire named Cassidy.
Look for more … as always … soon.
