Production has begun on AMC’s upcoming TV adaptation of Garth Ennis’ iconic comic series Preacher which is set for a debut in 2016; the pilot episode being directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, W. Earl Brown, Lucy Griffiths and Elizabeth Perkins. Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) is the series showrunner.
After merging with a bizarre spiritual force called Genesis, Texan preacher Jesse Custer has become completely disillusioned with the beliefs to which he had dedicated his entire life. Now possessing the power of “the word,” an ability to make people do whatever he utters, Custer begins a violent and riotous journey across the country. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip and the hard-drinking Irish vampire Cassidy, Custer loses faith in both God and man as he witnesses dark atrocities and improbable calamities during his exploration of America.
