Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s AMC adaptation of the famed Preacher comic is still keeping its main man in shadow, but another of Jesse Custer’s crew has stepped into the light … to burn. Misfits star Joseph Gilgun has landed the fan-favorite role of Irish vampire Cassidy, leaving one to go in the Preacher cast.
We’re still awaiting news on the man himself, but AMC’s Preacher keeps right on casting its most recognizable characters, this time around giving a face (or at least part of it) to fan-favorite character Eugene Root. Rake star Ian Colletti will don the disfigurement of Preacher’s Arseface, but will AMC’s incarnation prove any lower-key?
Where AMC’s Preacher adaptation had reportedly eyed Howard Stark, er … Dominic Cooper as its titular lead, A Marvel-ous new twist has arisen. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ruth Negga has transformed into the first official member of the Preacher cast, playing the role of the iconic Tulip.
As AMC scurries about its latest spinoff attempts, we’re keeping a closer eye on the long-awaited adaptation of Preacher, as shepherded by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Only the pilot order is official, though a new report suggests Agent Carter star Dominic Cooper has become the frontrunner for the title role.
Months have passed since we’d heard anything from ‘Preacher,’ Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s AMC development of the famed Garth Ennis comic as a TV series, but given the network’s success with comic properties, a pilot order was all-but inevitable. Now, AMC has handed down the official ‘Preacher’ production decree, with Rogen and Goldberg set to direct and produce the pilot.
Some months ago, we heard rumblings that AMC was gearing up for a 'Preacher' TV drama, based on the iconic comic series, under the surprising umbrella of 'Superbad' team Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Now, the network officially confirmed 'Preacher' for the development slate, placing the sinful series on track to be the next 'Walking Dead.'
At long last, Garth Ennis' controversial graphic novel 'Preacher' is finally making the transition from page to screen -- small screen, that is. After years of languishing in various stages of big and small screen development, AMC has ordered a pilot for a series adaptation of the story, which follows a preacher imbued with the voice of God as he hunts down the Lord himself, who has abandoned all creation, and forces Him to answer for His carelessness.
