Could the Preacher comic books be coming to the small screen?
According to a report on badassdigest.com, AMC has ordered a pilot based on the comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The controversial comics follow Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher who struggles with his own demons, literally and figuratively.
It's not the first time a Preacher project has been on the table. Kevin Smith and Sam Mendes were attached to previous film incarnations that never came to fruition. Mendes also told Collider last year that he believed Preacher was best suited for cable TV. In 2008, HBO passed on an adaptation, saying it was too violent and controversial.
Seth Rogen posted some tweets over the weekend indicating that he may be involved with this project. "Looks like about seven years of hard work are about to pay off. I may get to bring one of my favourite stories ever to live," Rogen tweeted. He followed that up with a post naming characters: "Arseface. John Wayne, The Saint of Killers."
AMC has not commented on the report.
