Preacher, the movie

24 Jan

After looking through Carl’s comic book/graphic novel collection and mining V for Vendetta, Sin City (I worked on that one!), 300, and Watchmen, the movie industry has finally latched onto Preacher for their next big screen adaptation, one of the comic series that I’ve actually read.

Sam Mendes (American Beauty) is attached to direct, which is a good thing, and John August is writing the screenplay. Nothing else is set, which means it could very easily not ever get made. If it does though, it’s potentially great. John August can write great things (Go) when not interfered with. He can also write merely mediocre things (Charlie and The Chocolate Factory), so we’ll have to wait and see.
