Got an email in to Garth to confirm, but SCI FI Wire says:
HBO is developing a one-hour series based on the popular 1990s Vertigo comic series Preacher, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mark Steven Johnson, who directed the comic-book adaptations Daredevil and the upcoming Ghost Rider for the big screen, is writing the pilot. Howard Deutch (The Whole Ten Yards) is set to direct. Johnson and Deutch will executive produce along with Michael De Luca, George Agusto, Chris Bender and J.C. Spink. Ennis and Dillon will serve as co-executive producers of the HBO series.
EDIT: I’m not going to reprint what Garth just said.
