The Preacher movie

Sam Mendes will direct a bigscreen adaptation of the supernatural graphic novel "Preacher" for Columbia Pictures.

HBO dropped the Preacher series. I thought a series version of the 75 comic Preacher made more sense, time to develop the many characters and subplots. Cassidy, Jesse and Tulip's backstories alone; it's hard to think how it can be compressed so much and still capture what makes Preacher so great. The raunch next to the philosophy; the sex next to religion; the gunplay next to the love.

But, Mendes did a great job with Road to Perdition, another graphic novel.
