Variety just recently dropped the mega bomb announcing that Sam Mendes (“American Beauty,” “Road To Perdition,” “Revolutionary Road”) will direct DC/Vertigo’s all-kinds-of-messed up graphic novel “Preacher” for Columbia Pictures.

“Created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, graphic novel focuses on the preacher of a Texas town, who is struggling to get by and is driven only by his strong moral sense. When the city is decimated by an otherworldly force, he embarks on a journey across the country to take on the evil.”

To make this news even better, “Columbia is also developing another Ennis comicbook, ‘The Boys,’ which Moritz and Netter are producing together.”

I’m giddy with excitement, truly I am with this fantastic news.
