Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been officially slated to adapt Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s epic comic...

Regular readers will recall that back in November we reported on the rumour that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg had been given the nod to produce an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's epic and brutal western comic Preacher.

Well, it has finally been confirmed. Rogen and Goldberg, who are have a longstanding writing partnership are teaming up with Sam Catlin on the adaptation for Sony and AMC. Catlin, who, as a writer and producer of Breaking Bad has been part of one of AMC's biggest critical successes will serve as showrunner.

Rogen and Goldberg were pleased to finally make their involvement public and, in an official statement, admitted to being ‘psyched’ about the project that they’ve been attempting to launch for seven years.

We’re pretty pleased about it too, and not least because it means that this religious-themed comic may finally find its way on the long dark road out of Development Hell.

As ever, we’ll bring you more news as it emerges.
