"Preacher" Adds Jackie Earle Haley In Villain Role
Marc Malkin of E! Online reports that Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) are teaming up to make a documentary about Comic-Con International in San Diego. It “will be centered on a still-to-be-cast group of convention-going superfans,” he says, and will follow them for a few months before the con, in addition to seeing what they’re up to in San Diego.
Both Whedon and Spurlock are no strangers to Comic-Con. Whedon, of course, has attended numerous times to promote things like Dollhouse and Buffy, while Spurlock was there last year recruiting fans for The Simpsons 20th anniversary documentary he did. And both have a relationship with Dark Horse, as Spurlock is working on Supersized: Strange Tales From a Fast Food Culture with the publisher.
