More Preacher details

More news on HBO’s Preacher. Amongst other things of note, the new Preacher series is going to recreate the individual issues of the Preacher comic as faithfully as possible. The writer, Mark Steven Johnson, also comments on the now-cancelled movie:

“Well, Preacher is 70-something issues,” he said. “There was going to be a movie made of Preacher a while ago, and I read the script, and it broke my heart. Because I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s not a two-hour movie. Preacher’s six years—six dedicated years of the most incredible stuff you’ve ever seen in your whole life. So I always thought HBO was the only way to do that.”
