D.J. Caruso Updates Status Of PREACHER Movie
Director D.J. Caruso provides an update on the status of the Preacher movie and also discusses the chances of an I Am Number Four sequel. "I'm still attached to Preacher," says Caruso.
While promoting his upcoming family film titled Standing Up, director D.J. Caruso also gave an update on where things stand on the adaptation of Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon's Vertigo comic book series, Preacher. Said Caruso, "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. Todd August wrote a great script. I think it’s one of those features that has to kind of go through the studio system if it’s going to be made for a certain price. So we’re kind of revisiting a way to approach making the movie in the right way."
The director also touched on a sequel to I Am Number Four, adding, " It’s come up before because we did decent numbers here in the states, but we didn’t do great, but really internationally the movie did well and it has this huge following so I get that question a lot. The Power of Six, which is the second book and would feature Number Six a little bit more, we’ve talked about it, but nothing’s really jumpstarted. There’s been some talk in the past couple of months about trying to do something because there is this audience appetite out there and even on my Twitter account it’s crazy. Most of the people on Twitter that contact me from all over the world ask, “Where’s the next movie?” I think DreamWorks is getting those too so it’ll be interesting. I don’t know if I’d be involved, but I know they’re talking about it."
|Preacher is a comic book series from writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, that's published by DC Comics imprint, Vertigo. The story follows Jesse Custer, a preacher in the small Texas town of Annville who was accidentally possessed by a supernatural creature called Genesis, an infantile entity that very well could be the most powerful being in the universe. This supernatural occurrence prompts Dillion to begin a cross country pilgrimage to discover the truth about his newly acquired powers.|
