Preacher - from Graphic Novel to Movie

Sam Mendes will be directing the screen adaptation of the graphic novel Preacher for Columbia Pictures!

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon (and others) created the graphic novel which focusses on the preacher of a small Texas town, who is struggling to get by until the city is obliterated by a supernatural otherworldly force. The preacher picks himself up and starts a journey across the country to kick some Evil Butt.

This is going to be interesting to see Mr. Sam Mendes pull out the stops - he is better known for the amazing work he's done on movies like American Beauty, Jarhead and Road to Perdition (this info culled from with the actual article culled from SciFiWire.

Will be interesting to see if they manage to pull it off although I do know that the make up for Arse-Face has been online for a bit. Just hope that they get all the characters just right.
