Movie rights granted for the Preacher (as in DC Vertigo comics) film.

Me = happy.  :)

As much as I love Preacher, how in the hell are they going to tell that story in one movie? Sure, there's quite a bit of superfluous stuff, but there's still a lot of story to work through. I always thought it'd work better as an HBO miniseries.

Yeah, that's my one concern with it. I'm hoping they make it a series of movies- there's a lot of 'side story' to follow, even as a mini-series (not to mention the Saint of Killer's own storyline).

Sounds interesting. Pity they're unlikely to get Clint Eastwood as Saint of Killers.

Hmmm.... that's an interesting thing to consider. Who *would* do the role well? I think Eastwood's pushing the age barrier of the role, but could probably pull it off.

Then again... the role isn't exactly super physical. I mean, he basically shoots, and stands there and takes whatever's thrown at him, right? :)

Sam Elliott?
Chris Christopherson? (A little old, I think)
Edward James Olmos?

Oooh, I like that. Edward James Olmos - yeah!
