Sam Mendes ("American Beauty," "Road To Perdition," "Revolutionary Road") will direct a big screen version of the DC/Vertigo funnybook series "Preacher" for Sony. For a good long while HBO and Mark Steven Johnson ("Jack Frost," "Daredevil") were developing the property as a TV series, but that plan was recently aborted. Find here AN AICN STORY DATED EXACTLY TEN YEARS AGO TODAY talking about a "Preacher" movie to be produced by Kevin Smith (!) and directed by Rachel "Tank Girl" Talalay (!).
