Sam Mendes Talks Preacher

MTV got a chance to ask Sam Mendes about the current status of Preacher. He told MTV that he is still waiting for a script before signing onto the project but seems pretty game calling the comic "absolutely brilliant”, saying:
“I think it’s absolutely brilliant,” said Mendes when asked why he found “Preacher” intriguing. “It’s a gripping story, fantastic characters, great visual landscape. It mixes supernatural and real worlds brilliantly… it’s funny, and it’s absolutely, completely blasphemous, possibly even sacrilegious I would say. Which might be a dangerous thing to take on.”
