The week following his latest release, I Am Number Four, director D.J. Caruso has confirmed to fans that he's officially on board Columbia Pictures' Preacher, the long-awaited adaptation of the Vertigo comic created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. Neal Moritz will produce via his Original Films banner and Jason Netter will produce through his Kickstart Productions.
The helmer made the confirmation via his Twitter page by saying:
"My deal just closed on Preacher. Going back to the dark side and pretty f*cking pumped!"
Plot Concept: "Preacher" told the story of a down-and-out Texas preacher possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon. With immense powers handed to him, the preacher teams with an old girlfriend and a hard-drinking Irish vampire and sets out on a journey across America to find God -- who apparently had abandoned his duties in heaven -- and hold him accountable for his negligence.
