AMC's 'Preacher' TV Series Has Officially Begun Production

'Preacher' comic book AMC TV show

An adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic book series Preacher has been in the works for so long (either as a film or television series adaptation), fans may be understandably still surprised that the project is actually happening. Add in the fact that comedy writer/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are behind the AMC production, and the upcoming TV version of Jesse Custer's tale is even more unbelievable.

Dominic Cooper - perhaps best known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of the young Howard Stark (most recently featured on Agent Carter) - stars as Custer, alongside Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ruth Negga as Tulip O'Hare. Rogen and Goldberg are writing and directing the Preacher pilot.

Now, thanks to a Tweet from Rogen himself, we have confirmation that Preacher has officially begun production... and by Rogen's own admission, even he is surprised that the project has finally come together (see below).
