Sam Mendes talks Preacher movie

Mendes gives update on his much antcipated Preacher pic…

Sam Mendes is taking time out to talk about the status of his much anticipated  Preacher movie:

“You have to try and get one really good and then, if you’re lucky, you can make a second or a third,” said Mendes. “You can create something that’s going to run. But I think that there’s certainly more than enough for one good movie and plenty left over”, said the director of a potential franchise.

The original comic was created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon and ran from 1995-2000. Preacher told the story of a down-and-out Texas preacher possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon.

Though casting is still a long way off, Mendes seemed excited at the prospect of bringing the characters to life, saying the series has some “real good roles in there”
