Seth Rogen Wants To Make Preacher Unexpected To Comic Book Readers
Speaking to /Film, Seth Rogan gave an update on how the Preacher television adaptation for AMC is coming along. Rogan said that, in writing the series, they're trying to make it different enough for fans of the comic book series to still be caught off guard. "Me and Evan [Goldberg] are writing it right now with the help of Sam Catlin," said Rogan "and we've come up with a lot of incredibly crazy ideas. [Laughs] It's a fun thing to riff on and talk about. We're definitely trying to expand on some of the ideas in the comic and make it that…we love most of the main cornerstones of the comic but we're trying to make it that even if you've read the comic you should not know exactly what to expect from the TV show." Rogan's idea seems similar to the approach taken by AMC's other big comic adaptation, The Walking Dead. Preacher for AMC is an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's popular Vertigo Comics series about a Texas preacher possessed by a supernatural being with power to match that of God. AMC announced that they were adapting the series for television in February.
