I guess there’s nothing wrong with wishful thinking or speculation, especially if fan reactions can maybe trigger something into becoming reality.
CloneWeb caught up with director D.J. Caruso who recently found himself attached to direct the live-action adaptation of Garth Ennis’ comic series Preacher. Caruso used some of the time to sound off on a wish list of actors he’d personally like to see in the Tarantino-esque genre film that follows a down-and-out Texas preacher (Jesse Custer) possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon. Given immense powers, the preacher teamed with an old girlfriend and a hard-drinking Irish vampire and set out on a journey across America to find God — who apparently had abandoned his duties in heaven — and hold him accountable for his negligence.
While nothing is official, Caruso explained that he’s talked with Star Trek and Carriers star Chris Pine for the lead role of “Jesse Custer,” while Shia LaBouf had talked about playing Nirvana megafan “Arseface,” a depsressed kid who blew half of his face off in an attempt to emulate Kurt Cobain (pictured inside). His father is the town sheriff hunting down Custer and his crew.
