Can a film actually collapse into itself if it features too many heartthrobs? D.J. Caruso is conducting a little experiment to find out. The I Am Number Four director claims that Alex Petyfer, Shia LeBeouf, and Chris Pine have all expressed interest in separate roles in the upcoming adaptation of the Preacher comic series.

Preacher is the story of a man of God who teams up with a vampire to confront the lord himself for his negligence and malice. Of the three aforementioned actors, I really like Alex Petyfer for the starmaking role of “God.” Sadly, it doesn’t sound like that’s going to happen, as Chris Pine is dicussing playing “Jesse,” Shia TheBeef is weighing the role of Arseface(!), and Alex Petyfer, the Saint of Killers.

Caruso has a reputation for speaking candidly about upcoming projects, so while these may be very real considerations, a lot can happen between now and whenever this film starts production. These three are among the busiest and most desired actors in Hollywood, so don’t be surprised if they fall out of discussions to pursue a remake, reboot, sequel or adaptation in the near future.

Any ideas?

Comic-book fans will be confused to find out that Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans) is in talks with New Line to direct an adaptation of Y: The Last Man. Written by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, the series follows the world’s last known male and his adventures on a planet now run by females.

D.J. Caruso was originally slated to direct, but reportedly left after a disagreement with New Line over the length of the project. Caruso wanted more, the studio wanted less. Here’s where the confusion sets in. Although Leterrier is in talks to replace Caruso, he still seems to think the film could end up a trilogy or possibly a television series.

“It could play as a movie, but it would be very interesting as a TV show… [It wouldn't work as] one large film, no. I’d love to do it as a TV show or a three-part series…. I like the idea of a TV show. You take time to get to know your characters. You can introduce a lot of characters. You don’t need your three-action set pieces that you usually need for movies.”

With the success of “The Walking Dead” on AMC, I can totally see his point, as comics are better suited to multiple installments than a single film. But as Rob Keyes of Screen Rant points out, if New Line dumped Caruso over length (the same reason my last girlfriend dumped me), why would they bring in a guy who is talking about a multi-episode T.V. show? Any ideas? (MTV via Screen Rant)
