If you accept Twitter banter as truth, then we can all agree that the TV adaptation of the comic series Preacher will include some big name directors such as Duncan Jones (Warcraft) and Edgar Wright (Previously Ant-Man).
Seth Rogen is officially on-board to develop the series that’s being adapted for a AMC TV series. The banter though kicked off on twitter when Duncan Jones approached Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for a possible directing role. Rogen jumped in to offer him the director’s chair. Jones accepted the offer, and things spiraled from there.
Here’s how the exchange went down:
And since we’re on the subject of dream directors for the project, I wonder if Star Wars: Episodes VIII and IX director Rian Johnson is available…
At some point a fan brought Edgar Wright into the discussion, and like Candyman, he suddenly appeared with an idea of his own.
So there you have it, guys. Preacher will be a space opera in which Jesse Custer is an astronaut played by Bob Dylan played by Cate Blanchett, who will eventually run into Han Solo. Blanchett and Oscar Isaac will win both the Golden Globe and the Emmy for their roles, obviously. But seriously, it sounds like maybe the Duncan Jones thing could actually happen, which would be fantastic. Jones should get to direct basically anything he wants.
