Seth Rogen Discusses Changes Being Made for Preacher. Anticipation is high for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s upcoming adaptation of the critically acclaimed comic book series Preacher for AMC. However, the TV series may be different from its source material, according to Seth.
There were some details on AMC’s new upcoming series Preacher, but now Seth Rogen is willing to share what we can expect as far as changes being made from the comics to the small screen. The comic book series is known for its multi-layered story with a huge cast and subplots, so it was expected that some major changes were going to be made. But Seth told CraveOnline that fans shouldn’t worry, saying that the series would still carry the spirit of the comics.
We are changing the specifics of how the narrative is unfolding. A lot of the building blocks we are not changing, a lot of characters we’re keeping, but we want to make a show that if you’re a fan of the comic, you don’t know what to expect. And we have no interest honestly in just doing a literal page-to-page adaptation. It just seems like the most boring creative endeavor one could go on! I mean there’s some things that even Garth will argue, is quick to admit that we probably should not even attempt to put on television. There’s some characters, we’re talking about maybe we combine these two into one person. But to us the tangential element is one of our favorite things. The fact that it does go off into these other worlds and explore these other characters, I mean that’s something that we wholeheartedly intend on indulging in because it’s one of the best parts about the comic. Just the massive tapestry of f***ing weirdos. [Laughs.]
It’s safe to say that Rogen knows what he’s doing and as long as the series stays true to what the comics is about, then fans have nothing to fear. What do you guys think?
