Attempts have been made for the last 15 years to create an adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion’s graphic novel Preacher, but now it seems it might finally happen as AMC has given the go-ahead to the This is the End team of Seth Rogan and Evan Goldburg.
Names like Kevin Smith, Sam Mendes, Rachel Talaly and DJ Caruso have all made an attempt at one point to adapt the novel for screen, but AMC made the announcement yesterday that Seth Rogan and Evan Goldburg will be the two main heads to put Preacher on the screen.
AMC is giving them a trusted guiding hand however in the form of Sam Catlin, who was a writer-producer for AMC’s Breaking Bad. I see this move as a positive one for Rogan and Goldburg as they don’t have the experience of running a day-to-day set of a television show like Catlin gained on Breaking Bad.
What are your thoughts on AMC’s selection for creating a Preacher adaptation? Think it is a good choice to capture the tone of the Ennis and Dillion’s work? Sound off in the comments below!
