A few months ago, we reported that Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) would be bringing the acclaimed comic series Preacher to television. For years, various filmmakers tried to fit Preacher for the big screen, but I think it will work much better on television since it’s a sprawling, epic story with loads of characters. Because of their background in comedy, Rogen and Goldberg may seem like unlikely choices to adapt such dark material, but it turns out that the comic was a huge influence on their lives.
Steve recently spoke with Goldberg and co-producer James Weaver at the press day for Neighbors, and they also talked about Preacher. During their conversation, they talked about the look of the series, mapping out the budget, where it fits in their schedule, the support from AMC, and more. Hit the jump for what they had to say.
