Cut to 7 years later, yes today, and we still haven’t seen Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon’s epic Preacher adapted for Hollywood. Comic adaptations are at an all-time high, and genre-themed TV series are breaking records, so I ask once again, what the heck is taking so long?
After Columbia made it public this past September that they were targeting the great Darren Aronofsky to bring Jesse Custer to the big screen, things went silent, again. This morning /Film is reporting some fresh news as they claim that Disturbia/Eagle Eye helmer DJ Caruso is in talks to direct a big screen adaptation of “Preacher.” But they add that this is said to be all dependent on the box office of his latest film, I Am Number Four, which looks like a train wreck. I guess we’ll be updating you again in 6 months when yet another person is talking about making one of the greatest comic stories ever told.
All talk, no do. Pussies.
“Preacher,” which ran from 1995-2000, told the story of a down-and-out Texas preacher 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.
