D.J. Caruso has said he is still attached to the feature film version of the comic book series Preacher.
Speaking to I Am Rogue, the Disturbia director, who had talked about the project as far back as two years ago, said it had been put on the back burner because of another film he had been working on at Sony.
“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,” he said.
“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. 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.”
Preacher is an adaptation of Vertigo series by Northern Ireland-born writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon that ran for 75 issues from 1995 – 2000.
