Sam Mendes will be directing the bigscreen adaptation of the the graphic novel Preacher from writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon according to Variety.

The story is that a Preacher in a Texas town witnesses it totally destroyed by a supernatural force, and he heads out on a cross country journey intent on rooting out and destroying the evil that caused the destruction of his town.

Gary Oldman is joining Denzel Washington in The Book of Eli according to Variety. The film takes place in a post-apocalyptic world and sees Washington play a lone warrior who is fighting to bring society the knowledge that he holds which could well be the key to its very redemption. Oldman will be playing the bad guy in another town that wants to get his hands on the book and the secret that Eli is carrying. The film is to be directed by Allen and Albert Hughes.

According to Yahoo Movies Villains is a graphic novel set to make it to the big screen, and as the title suggests, it takes a different look at the comic world of superheroes. This one is told from the perspective of the evil character and follows a young man who's life is falling apart and meets a villain who takes him under his wing and trains him how to be one of the bad guys. The graphic novel is created by Adam Cogan and Ryan Cody and will be adapted by Matt Jennison and Brent Strickland, the two men behind the Wonder Woman script.
