A movie version of Garth Ennis’ Preacher has been a tantalizing prospect for many years now. And in an anticlimax that is sure to make Ennis scoff, it’s previously rumored DJ Caruso (I Am Number Four, Disturbia) who’s actually getting to make it happen. There’s still some chance it might fall through I guess, since the deal is in its “final stages,” but he announced it via Twitter, so it looks like it’s going to happen. Unless of course that’s a DJ Caruso Twitter impostor, which would be the weirdest thing ever.
Who knows, maybe Caruso will surprise us all by making a movie that matches the madcap insanity of the comic, with all the crazy sex and violence (and sexual violence) that that entails. Until then, I’m going to remain pessimistic in order to protect myself from disappointment. (via Collider)
