Since I haven't unleashed a ZOMGBBQ!!1 in a while, I thought this would be an appropriate time:
HBO is developing a one-hour series based on the popular 1990s Vertigo comic series Preacher, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mark Steven Johnson, who directed the comic-book adaptations Daredevil and the upcoming Ghost Rider for the big screen, is writing the pilot. Howard Deutch (The Whole Ten Yards) is set to direct. Johnson and Deutch will executive produce along with Michael De Luca, George Agusto, Chris Bender and J.C. Spink.ZOMGBBQ!!1
I will now add the obligatory: pleasedon'tfuckitup.pleasedon'tfuckitup. pleasedon'tfuckitup.
(via Warren Ellis, who says he won't reprint what Garth Ennis said about the project. That forces me to repeat: pleasedon'tfuckitup. pleasedon'tfuckitup. pleasedon'tfuckitup.)
 Warren Ellis calls Garth Ennis "Garth." I guess you get to do that when you're one of those guys.
 This is bigger than Preacher. If they don't fuck this up, it could open the door to adapting Watchmen as a 1 hour series.
