Garth Ennis’ Punisher Ruins Other Superheroes

The Punisher Vol. 4 1-12 (2000-2001) Vol. 5 1-37 (2001-2004) Vol. 6 1-60 (2004-2008)

Written by Garth Ennis Art by Steve Dillon, Darick Robertson, Tom Mandrake, Cam Kennedy, John McCrea, Leandro Fernandez, Lewis Larosa, Doug Braithwaite, Goran Pavlov, Lan Medina Published by Marvel Comics

 

It was over five years ago that a good friend turned to me and suggested I read The Punisher, written by Garth Ennis under the Max imprint of Marvel Comics. In one of the greatest examples of understatement I have encountered in my life, he said, “I think you will like it”. He wasn’t wrong. The series has stuck with me to this day and sparked a love for the works of Garth Ennis that would eventually see me tracking down Preacher and afterwards, The Boys. It has served as a comfort, at times an inspiration, and always a thoroughly enjoyable read that for my money show cases »

Pilot ordered for Preacher TV series

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher is on its way to TV...

This could be massive. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s superb comic Western Preacher could well be on its way to TV. After languishing in Development Hell for years, the adaptation might finally go ahead under the creative guidance of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Rumours have begun to emerge after Rogen tweeted hints about his involvement, while Badass Digest reported that the pair, who adapted The Green Hornet for cinema, are working on a pilot for AMC.

Although it’s currently enjoying ratings success with The Walking Dead, the end of Breaking Bad and the imminent closure of Mad Men means that AMC needs to plug a major gap in its output. Preacher may be the stopper that it’s been looking for.

Preacher, for the yet-to-be-converted is the wild tale of Jesse Custer, »

Some New Details On The Preacher TV Series

18 November 2013 7:21 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Bleeding Cool report that the pilot order for the small screen adaptation of Garth Ennis’ and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher has been given by Sony Pictures Television studio, and not AMC as was previously reported -- although the network will be handling Us broadcasting for the show, while not actually have any control over its development. Seth Rogen hinted (pretty strongly) that he would be involved in some way, and it seems that he and writing partner Evan Goldberg have indeed worked on the pitch for Sony Pictures along with Breaking Bad series writer Sam Caitlin. But that's not all: Bleeding Cool also reckon that Garth Ennis is very pleased, and feels that Goldberg and Rogen have "finally captured the tone" of the comic. According to the site the writer would be an active consultant if the series moves forward. More at the link below. »

An adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic "Preacher" has been to the pulpit a few times over the years. Sam Mendes, Darren Aronofsky and Joe Carnahan have all been involved and/or rumored at various points, and most recently, D.J.

AMC to Develop Preacher TV Series

18 November 2013 6:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A feature film adaptation of the comic book Preacher has been in film development for awhile. Kevin Smith, DJ Caruso, and Sam Mendes were all attached to direct the film at some point. Producers have been trying to get this to the big screen since 1998. After all this time it looks like we might see it as a TV series before a movie.

According to Badass Digest, AMC has ordered a pilot based on the classic Vertigo comic. This is the network that has given us The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men. So chances are if they actually end up doing this, it's going to turn out to be a solid series. 

Preacher was created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, and it tells the story of Texas reverend Jesse Custer who, after merging with the escaped offspring of a demon and an angel, finds himself »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg rumoured to be developing Preacher pilot for AMC

17 November 2013 11:07 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's acclaimed comic book series Preacher might finally be making it to the screen, with rumours from Badass Digest suggesting that This Is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are developing a pilot for AMC. According to the report AMC is hopeful that Preacher could help to fill the hole left in its schedule following the conclusion of Breaking Bad and the soon-to-be-ending Mad Men, although a rep for the cable network has refused to confirm whether there's any truth to the story.

Published between 1995 and 2000, Preacher centres on Jesse Custer, a small-town reverend who becomes possessed by an entity called Genesis, sending him on a quest to find God in order to confront Him for abandoning his creation. Various screen adaptations of the sprawling tale have been in the works over the years, with Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl) first set to direct »

Seth Rogen Bringing Preacher to AMC?

17 November 2013 1:26 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Big news today for people who are looking forward to the much talked about adaptation of the brilliant Garth Ennis comic Preacher. It sounds as if things are cooking in a really big way. Read on for details.

According to Badass Digest, AMC has ordered a pilot based on the classic Vertigo comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. For those not quite playing along, Preacher tells the tale of down-and-out Texas preacher (Jesse Custer) 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, sets out on a journey across America to find God -- who apparently has abandoned his duties in heaven -- and hold him accountable for his negligence.

The site didn't know who exactly was behind the "Preacher" pilot but heard "the names are big and impressive. »

TV Pilot For Vertigo's "Preacher"

17 November 2013 12:48 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, AMC, the home of "Mad Men", "Breaking Bad" and "The Walking Dead", have attached Seth Rogen in a developing TV pilot adapting the Vertigo comic book series "Preacher", by Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon and Glenn Fabry.

"...'Jesse Custer', a preacher in the small Texas town of 'Annville', was accidentally possessed by the supernatural creature named 'Genesis' in an incident which killed his entire congregation and flattened his church.

"Genesis, the product of the unauthorized, unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon, is an infant with no sense of individual will. Jesse Custer, bonded to Genesis, may have become the most powerful being in the whole of living existence.

"Custer, driven by a strong sense of right and wrong, goes on a journey across the Us to discover the truth about his new powers. They allow him, when he wills it, to command the obedience of those »

Preacher Being Developed as an AMC Pilot, Seth Rogen May Be Producing

17 November 2013 12:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August, director D.J. Caruso revealed that he is still attached to direct Preacher, which was created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. Today, we have word that AMC has issued a pilot order for the comic book adaptation. Shortly after the original story broke at Badass Digest, Seth Rogen sent out two tweets which reveal that he is involved in the project in some capacity.

Looks like about seven of years of hard work are about to pay off. I may get to bring one of my favourite stories ever to life.

Pilot Ordered For Preacher TV Series

17 November 2013 9:50 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Despite Disturbia director DJ Caruso talking as recently as August about how the cinematic adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s seminal graphic novel Preacher is going, it would appear that the character may instead end up on television. AMC, the Us cable channel behind the likes of Mad Men and Breaking Bad, has commissioned a pilot for a series based on the controversial character.Preacher has bounced between both big and small screens in deveopment limbo for years, with Ennis writing a script that Kevin Smith wanted to direct and other filmmakers such as Sam Mendes and Rachel Talaly attached at different points. Then there was Daredevil’s Mark Steven Johnson, who was looking to get the idea on to the small screen via HBO. But despite nearly 15 years of attempts, nothing has come of it all.Part of that is down to the problematic plot. Preacher is »

Is AMC Going on the Road with a Preacher TV Series? (With Seth Rogen?)

17 November 2013 7:41 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

According to Badass Digest, they’re hearing that the answer is Yes. Not just that, but AMC, the cable network behind “The Walking Dead”, has already ordered a pilot for the show, with some “big and impressive” names attached to it. Based on the Vertigo comic book of the same name (Vertigo is the more mature branch of D.C. Comics, i.e. the less silly arm of D.C.) by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the book is, er, essentially what you would write if you really, really wanted to piss off people in the religious community. Everyone and their momma have been trying to get this book turned into a movie or a TV series, but no one has been able to do it — mostly because of the subject matter. Is it really that flammable?

Is Seth Rogen bringing 'Preacher' to AMC?

"Preacher," Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's epic comic book mash-up of Westerns, Southern Gothics, black comedy, metaphysics and good old-fashioned horror, has been trapped in Hollywood development hell since the late '90s. Every few years, a new white knight turns up to rescue it: first Kevin Smith (to produce a movie version that might have starred James Marsden in the title role), then Mark Steven Johnson (who wrote an aborted series version at HBO), and more recently Sam Mendes and D.J. Caruso (each briefly attached to an attempt to make a "Preacher" movie). Now, two new saviors have appeared, and they »

Preacher Gets Pilot Order from AMC?

16 November 2013 12:14 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Over the years, multiple directors have attempted to get an adaptation of Preacher on the big screen, but it has never panned out. More recently, there has been word of turning it into a TV series and a new report suggests that AMC is moving ahead with a pilot order.

For those who are unfamiliar with Preacher, it is a Vertigo comic series that was first released in 1995 and was created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. Without giving too much away, here’s a basic plot summary:

“Merging with a bizarre spiritual force called Genesis, Texan Preacher Jesse Custer becomes completely disillusioned with the beliefs that he had dedicated his entire life to. 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.

Preacher TV Show In The Works At AMC

16 November 2013 10:57 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Badass Digest, AMC have ordered a pilot for Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher. It seems the network wants to fill the void left by Breaking Bad, and are turning to the notoriously difficult to adapt Vertigo comic series to try to do just that. The last we had heard there was actually still a big-screen adaptation planned from Eagle Eye director DJ Caruso, but that's been in development Hell for so long it was probably only a matter of time before it was dropped -- a tv series is a much better fit for Preacher anyway. So, this should please fans of Reverend Jesse Custer and his very strange pals. Casting ideas please! »

Updated: Is AMC Developing Preacher for Television?

16 November 2013 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

The long journey of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's cult comic series "Preacher" continues and this time it might be headed for the small screen. Badass Digest is reporting that AMC is developing the series for television and have already ordered a pilot based on the series. Previous reports had director DJ Caruso still attached to a film adaptation, but that doesn't appear to be the case for this venture. Though no names are given, the site reports that the ones attached are "big and impressive." This all remains unconfirmed by AMC but given their current programming, the comic based The Walking Dead and hit western series Hell on Wheels , "Preacher" would fit in nicely with the rest of their schedule. If true, the adaptation could very well »

'I Am Number Four' director says he's still signed on to 'Preacher'

20 August 2013 2:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr)  It’s been two and a half years since DJ Caruso signed on to helm "Preacher", the long-discussed adaptation of the acclaimed Vertigo comics series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, and it’s been just as long since we’ve seen any movement on the project. However, the director said he hopes to have “good news” about the film soon. Or perhaps soon-ish. “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,” Caruso told I Am Rogue while promoting »

D.J. Caruso Says Preacher Film Still Planned

20 August 2013 8:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

While several other names have come and gone, Disturbia and Eagle Eye director D. J. Caruso was attached to direct a film adaptation of the hit Vertigo comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher, in 2011. Progress on the film is slow but Caruso’s name has stuck with the project and he ensures us the film does plan to go into production. While talking to I Am Rogue about his latest film, Standing Up, Caruso mentioned that the project is still on and has just been pushed back.

“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. 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. »
