It has been a few years since there’s been word on the long-gestating film adaptation of the comic series “Preacher”. At last report, “Disturbia” director D.J. Caruso was attached and the filmmaker confirmed to I Am Rogue that that remains the case.
“I’m still attached to Preacher and we’re wrestling with Sony because I got another movie at Sony called Invertigo, which is a big action film we’re trying to get going this summer.
So Preacher got put on the back burner, but we’re still involved with Preacher and hopefully we’ll have some good news on that soon. Todd August wrote a great script.
I think it’s one of those features that has to kind of go through the studio system if it’s going to be made for a certain price. So we’re kind of revisiting a way to approach making the movie in the right way.”
Caruso previously said he’d like Chris Pine to play the lead role of Jesse Custer.
