World War Z, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and 12 Years A Slave star Ruth Negga has now officially signed on to play Tulip in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's Preacher television adaptation.
The live-action adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's influential graphic novel series has been passed around for several years, but it seems to be making some serious progress in the hands of Rogen and Goldberg. We're still yet to hear who'll play the lead role of Jesse Custer, although at least his one true love has been cast.
Fans of the series hoping for a faithful adaptation of the comics might be slightly perturbed by the fact Negga doesn't look too much like the Tulip of the comics. However, despite this, I still have faith Rogen and Goldberg can deliver something which will do the original story and tone justice.
Currently the This Is The End and Superbad duo are developing a pilot for the AMC Network.
Is Ruth Negga right for Tulip?
