Comic Book Resources says X-Men series star James Marsden and producer Tom DeSanto talked about the third film and the possible big screen Preacher adaptation…
The first question, presented by Wizard’s Mike Cotton, asked what was the plan for X3. “Fox is very hard at work trying to get contracts so we can all get back into the trenches,” DeSanto responded, “and get the novie out in the next couple of years. Business affairs at Fox, working dilligently.”
Marsden commented briefly on the Garth Ennis adaptation, “Preacher.” “Almost two years ago I got a phone call from my agent, offering it. I was like, ‘What is Preacher?’ They were very vague. So I ask some of my friends, and they’re like ‘They offered you Jesse Custer? Preacher? Wow!’ I got a couple of the graphic novels and I was captivated, it was some of the best writing that I’d ever read. I just found it an amazing piece of literature. Right now it’s in development hell. When you have an independantly financed film, it’s getting harder to get them made. We’re gonna try to go this summer. I kind of wanted to wait another year so I could get more wrinkles and get even more weathered. If there was ever a role that I wanted to do some method acting, this would be it. My wife read every single one of the issues in two days, she was in love with ’em.”
