AMC Gives "Preacher" A Pilot Commitment

AMC has officially issued a pilot order for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s planned TV series adaptation of the acclaimed comic “Preacher”.

Sam Catlin is penning the adaptation and will serve as showrunner on the show which is being produced by Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios. Rogen and Goldberg will executive produce.

The story follows a down-and-out Texas preacher possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon.

Given immense powers, the preacher teams with an old girlfriend and a hard-drinking Irish vampire and sets out on a journey across America to find God — who apparently had abandoned his duties in heaven — and hold him accountable for his negligence.

There had been talk of a straight-to-series order but at present it is just a pilot. The pilot will be produced next summer for series consideration in 2016

Gotham iconic character update: Showrunner Bruno Heller reveals that fans can expect a “prenatal Robin” on the Fox drama series, while rumors of Harley Quinn making an appearance this season are unfounded.

“We’re going to do a prenatal origin story for Robin down the line,” Heller tells EW.

Since Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is still a young teenager on the series, his youthful eventual partner Robin hasn’t even been born yet. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to tell a story that touches on his character. “There are no MRIs involved,” Heller assures. “There’s an episode coming up where we learn how Robin’s parents got together.” Continue reading

Chris Pratt Is A "Ninja Cowboy Viking"

“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt is reportedly attached to topline the film adaptation of A.J. Lieberman’s graphic novel “Cowboy Ninja Viking” at Universal Pictures reports Collider.

The story revolves around an assassin with dissociative identity disorder who possess the skills of a cowboy, a ninja, and a Viking, and works for a secret government program.  He escapes and uses his skills to track down the billionaire who masterminded the program.

Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese “Zombieland” penned an earlier adaptation of the material which Disney rejected for being “too edgy”. Universal picked it up out of turnaround and attached Marc Forster to direct. Forster is no longer attached and no new helmer is yet set.

The most recent script draft indicates that when the character switches personalities, he will physically manifest onscreen as three different people. To other characters in the film though, he still just looks like Pratt’s character. Mark Gordon is producing.
