A TV adaptation for the comic book series had been planned in 2006, when Mark Steven Johnson purchased the rights and pitched the series to HBO. Johnson was a big fan of Preacher, but he believed that a two-hour movie would not be able to do justice to the property. In an interview with MovieWeb, he said that he didn’t want the storyline to be loyal, but “exact”, and that adapting all 75 issues would let the show run for 6 years. Johnson would produce the series and write the pilot, and expressed interest in having Kevin Smith and Robert Rodriguez direct episodes. Howard Deutch was reported to be directing the pilot, but Johnson said in another interview that he had only discussed the series with Deutch and it would all depend who would direct after the screenplay was finished. In 2008, Johnson revealed that the new head of HBO deemed the show to be too violent and demanded a revamp. Johnson refused, and HBO cancelled production.
After HBO abandoned Preacher, Neal H. Moritz of Original Film purchased the film rights for Columbia Pictures in 2008. John August was brought on board to write a script and Sam Mendes was attached to direct. Mendes left the film to work on Skyfall, and D.J. Caruso replaced him. Caruso later said that the film was put on the backburner because he was working on another film for Sony.
