There has been no movement on the Preacher feature film front for at least two years and now we finally may have some good news for you that have been waiting. Dig it below.
In an interview with I Am Rogue, Caruso spoke about the project and is hoping for good news about the project soon.
“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.”
He added, “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 that he wanted Star Trek‘s Chris Pineto play the lead role of Jesse Custer in the film with Transformers star Shia LaBeouf reportedly interested in playing “Arseface.” The project is an adaptation of Vertigo series by Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon that ran for 75 issues from 1995 – 2000.
Will it be another two years before we find out anymore?
