Third Time's the Try?

First, the woman who made Tank Girl was going to make it as a film. (huh?) Never happened.

Then HBO was going to make it as a series (yay!) with the guy who made Daredevil (boo!). Never happened.

Now, per Newsarama and Variety, Sam Mendes and Columbia are going to make Preacher as a film. Hopefully.

While I definitely think, given the scale and scope of the series, that a TV series is the better vehicle here, I'm still curious to see this material as a film. Preacher may well be my favorite comic series ever, and the story is definitely cinematic, if maybe too close to NC-17 for comfort?

I will be following this one with high interest.

Until Whenever
