AMC's ‘Preacher’ Set Photo Teases a Helicopter Crash

AMC's ‘Preacher’ Set Photo Teases a Helicopter Crash

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.

Seth Rogen Shares Sneak Peek at AMC's ‘Preacher’ Set

Seth Rogen Shares Sneak Peek at AMC's ‘Preacher’ Set

Last week, production began on AMC's Preacher, and we've already gotten our first look at series star Dominic Cooper on the set. Shooting is still going strong on the pilot episode, and last night Seth Rogen, who is co-directing the pilot episode with Evan Goldberg, sent out the latest photo. Unfortunately, this image was taken from afar, so it isn't ultimately clear who is featured, but it appears to show two nuns chatting with a cop as an ambulance looks on.

We can also see plenty of snow on the ground, and Texas isn't exactly known for its winter climate. The vehicles seen in the background feature Russian words, so it seems this particular scene is set somewhere in Russia, but it isn't known how this scene fits into the overall story line. How could this Russian church be connected to a small town Texas Preacher? We'll have to wait and see.
