It’s been a long time since any news of the feature film adaptation of Garth Ennis’ graphic novel Preacher cropped up, and the light at the end of the tunnel is still elusive. But now we may have a better idea of exactly why that is. During press coverage for James Bond’s upcoming adventure, Skyfall director Sam Mendes opened up about his own ill-fated adaptation of Preacher.
Mendes is candid about the reasons he was forced to move on from bringing Ennis’ memorable cast to life on film, placing the blame with no one but himself. While his experience may not bode well for the film itself, he also believes that the big screen may not be the only place that Preacher could shine.
