D.J. Caruso Will Direct Preacher

HeatVision confirms that D.J. Caruso will direct the adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic Preacher. Sam Mendes had been attached but left the project to direct Bond 23. Caruso seems an odd choice as he's only directed PG-13 action films and nothing he's done is on the level of Mendes' work. The film focuses on a possessed Texas Preacher who teams up with an Ex-girlfriend and alcoholic Irish vampire to find God. Holding God accountable for abandoning his responsibilities.

A Preacher film would need be a hard-R similar to Watchmen to work properly and it's unknown if Sony is willing to go that route. I've never read the comic so I don't know what to think of his involvement. Yet it seems like Sony should have gone with more of an auteur filmmaker. I'll give Caruso some credit, he's been trying very hard to get a Y The Last Man film into theaters for years.
