D.J. Caruso to Direct Preacher

Comingsoon says:

I Am Number Four director D.J. Caruso confirmed on Twitter that he will direct the Preacher adaptation at Columbia Pictures. He said:

"My deal just closed on Preacher. Going back to the dark side and pretty f*cking pumped!

Based on the popular 1990s Vertigo series, the film will be produced by Neal Moritz and his Original Films as well as Kickstart Productions' Jason Netter.

Created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, "Preacher" told the story of a down-and-out Texas preacher possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon.

Given immense powers, the preacher teamed with an old girlfriend and a hard-drinking Irish vampire and set out on a journey across America to find God -- who apparently had abandoned his duties in heaven -- and hold him accountable for his negligence.

Caruso's film credits include Eagle Eye and Disturbia.

I've heard of the comic before and after hearing about the movie i did a little digging and it sounds to me like it could be a pretty sweet flick. I love dark ominous movies and this sounds like it would be right up my alley.

So they're on a roadtrip to kill God? I'm in. I'm not really a fan of this guy's movies though.

Disturbia was ok I guess.

I Liked Eagle Eye but Disturbia was more entertaining - Was almost like watching Fright Night without the Vampires

I saw Eagle Eye but I don't remember ANY of it so that probably says something about that film.

Eagle Eye was enjoyable. But, this movie looks like it will get controversey. Which will help it get a lot of sales in the box office. Unless, it's canceled from religious groups.
