HBO is developing a one-hour series based on the popular 1990s Vertigo comic series Preacher, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mark Steven Johnson, who directed the comic-book adaptations Daredevil and the upcoming Ghost Rider for the big screen, is writing the pilot. Howard Deutch (The Whole Ten Yards) is set to direct. Johnson and Deutch will executive produce along with Michael De Luca, George Agusto, Chris Bender and J.C. Spink.

The comic series, created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, ran from 1995 to 2000. It told the story of a down-and-out Texas preacher possessed by a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon. Given immense powers, the preacher sets with an old girlfriend and a hard-drinking Irish vampire on a journey across America to find God—who apparently had abandoned his duties in heaven—and hold him accountable for his negligence. Ennis and Dillon will serve as co-executive producers of the HBO series.

The latest incarnation of the project follows several attempts to bring the comic to the screen, including a proposed feature film starring James Marsden, which would have been produced by Kevin Smith and had a reported budget of $25 million, the trade paper reported.

I've read every issue of the comic-book series so I hope they don't screw this up. Wasn't impressed with Daredevil and the trailers for Ghost Rider doesn't particularly have me excited to see it. Nothing against Nicolas Cage, I feel he's not right for the part of Johnny Blaze.

I've only read a couple of issues, but really liked what I read. I, too, hope they don't screw it up. Mad

I quite liked 'Daredevil', the original theatrical cut anyway, so I think Mark Steve Johnson is an improvement on Rachel Talhany who was attached to the film project.

Not really sure who should be cast as Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy though.



I am glad to find there is at least one other person who enjoyed Daredevil. Not that it is a classic, but it was enjoyable, with the exceptions of some changes they made to the story. But, I can live with it. Still, I wasn't thrilled iwth Affleck as Matt, but can't really come up with a better suggestion. Now, it will be itneresting to see what "Foggy" does with Iron Man!
