Seth Rogen is hard at work shooting the pilot for his new AMC TV series Preacher, which is based on the iconic cult comic book of the same name. Working alongside co-director Evan Goldberg, the producer/director is making sure to keep fans updated with photos from the set. Yesterday we got to see a pair of Russian nuns speaking with a police officer as ambulances awaited in the background. Today's photo is slightly more action-packed, as it teases a helicopter crash.
Aside for the main story in the comic books, little is known about the plot of the pilot. At some point, we're guessing a helicopter meets its fiery fate after crashing into the cold ground. We're not sure if this is a continuation of the scene that was shown off yesterday. That particular moment in the show takes place in Russia. But a crashed helicopter would certain explain the need for ambulances and nuns.
Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a Texas preacher who merges with a supernatural entity that gives him the power to make anyone do as he commands. After discovering that God has literally abandoned his post in heaven, Jesse goes on a journey with his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) to literally find God. The supporting cast is rounded out by Lucy Griffiths as Emily, Ian Colletti as Arseface, W. Earl Brown as Hugo Root, Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon and Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson as a married couple created specifically for the TV series. Take a look at stay tuned for more updates. It's no quite clear when shooting on the pilot episode will wrap.
