Having just a ridiculous amount of success with The Walking Dead, AMC is trying to keep things going with another adaptation of a dark, violent comic series, Garth Ennis’ Preacher. Starring Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a priest who becomes possessed by a powerful creature that grants him the “Word of God”, which lets him command anyone to do anything he wants. With his Irish vampire best friend Cassidy (Joe Gilgun) and his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga), Jesse sets out to literally find God and make him answer for some of things he/she/it has done. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the pilot and are producing along with Sam Catlin and it’s debuting sometime next year. Check out the first trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
