Garth Ennis' series Preacher is one of my favorite things, so I guess today is the day I join the nerd fray and wring my hands about an upcoming comics-to-film adaptation: DJ Caruso just announced that he'll be directing the film. I haven't seen any of his other movies (Disturbia, Eagle Eye), but I Am Number Four was better than it should have been. Still, his is not a name that makes me think "Oh, of course! He'll make a worthwhile movie out of that totally unfilmable comics series." (Too bad it's not 1999, as Kevin Smith could pull it off. Equally too bad they didn't go the Walking Dead direction and film it as a TV show or miniseries.)
