Preacher: now an AMC TV show - No comic spoilers please

Recommended Posts

I really can't see this working, though I hope it does. An HBO series would've made more sense. Then again, if Snyder can pull off Watchmen - and I think he can - perhaps Mendes can make a great Preacher movie.

There’s nothing to suggest they’re doing the whole series in one film. Jesse doesn’t have to take down God in the first film, they could get a satisfying film from an adaptation of ‘Proud Americans’ or ‘Until the End of the World’. Possibly.

They should actually call it "Until The End Of The World", so it would cause confusion in the same way as the time when they remade Crash but with black people instead of cars.

He needs to announce his next film soon otherwise he is going to get attached to every vaguely interesting project that has yet to get a director. I'm waiting for him to be rumoured to direct Kane and Lynch seeing as that is now directorless.

With the loss of Breaking Bad and soon Mad Men, AMC is looking at a big hole in their schedule, one that shows like The Killing and Low Winter Sun haven't quite been able to fill. While they have the ratings juggernaut that is The Walking Dead, they still need something that will be a buzz show, that will get a ton of attention and make a cultural impact. They're betting that show will be Preacher.

Sources tell me that the network has ordered a pilot based on the classic Vertigo comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. In the comic Jesse Custer is a small town preacher who is torn by booze and sin and who finds himself the vessel for a strange entity - the child of a mating between an angel and a demon. Filled with immense power, including The Word of God, which makes anyone do whatever he says, Jesse goes hunting for the Lord Almighty, who has abandoned creation. He aims to make him pay for leaving his children behind. Joining Jesse on his journey is his ex-girlfriend Tulip, who is now a hit woman, and a hundred year old Irish vampire named Cassidy. Along the way they battle secret religious commandoes, the retarded descendent of Christ, a guy who fucks meat and even each other.
