Television news -- and much more!


Mark Steven Johnson, who brought Daredevil and Ghost Rider to the big screen, told The Continuum that his attempts to bring Garth Ennis' Preacher to HBO as a series were close but ultimately unsuccessful.

"We were budgeting and everything and it was getting really close to going," Johnson told The Continuum. "But the new head of HBO felt it was just too dark and too violent and too controversial. Which, of course, is kind of the point!

"It was a very faithful adaptation of the first few books, nearly word for word. They offered me the chance to redevelop it but I refused. I've learned my lesson on that front and I won't do it again. So I'm afraid it's dead at HBO.

"I've heard someone is in the process of getting the rights to turn it into a feature film. I hope that happens. But I hope it happens as a series of movies as one movie couldn't do it justice. I really love that story and I dedicated a lot of my time to honor Garth's work. But it wasn't meant to be."

Johnson is currently in post-production on When in Rome -- a comedy starrring Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Danny DeVito, Dax Shephard, Jon Heder and Angelica Huston -- and said he is enjoying returning to his comedy roots.

"It's a lot like Grumpy Old Men in feel and I'm having a blast," he said.

Warner Home Video has provided The Continuum the box art and a clip from Legion of Super Heroes Vol. 3, due in stores on Sept. 9.

Vol. 3 collects five episodes from the first season of the series, which aired on Kids' WB!: "The Substitutes," "Child's Play," "Chain of Command," "Sundown Part 1" and "Sundown Part 2."

Here's how Warner describes the volume:

:The Legion of Super Heroes, a three-time Emmy Awards nominee features the teen Heroes Superman, Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Timber Wolf, Brainiac 5, Bouncing Boy and Phantom Girl as they fight crime and protect mankind from a swarm of devious villains. In Legion of Super Heroes: Volume 3, Superman's time in the 31st century draws to a close, prompting the Legion to hold its annual tryouts for a fresh crop of heroes to replace him. The audition stars off with The Substitutes, a wacky band of rejects, and a mischievous wizard from planet Xerok who wreaks havoc in New Metropolis leaving only Phantom Girl to save the day. The adventure continues as a new member, Ferro Lad, is inducted into the Legion to help Lightning Lad defend his home from an onslaught of cosmic storms. The action-packed episodes conclude with the Legion's biggest threat yet: The Sun-Eater, a galaxy destroying weapon of mass destruction. Watch to see which Legionnaire makes the ultimate sacrifice in a grueling battle to defend the Universe and save mankind."
