For a long time, Hollywood filmmakers have been trying to bring the comic by Garth Ennis The Boys ( The Boys ) to the screens. More than ten years ago, work began on a full-length version, which was planned to be directed by Adam McKay. However, until now, nothing has come of this idea.|
According to the portal Birth.Movies.Death. , Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg ("End of the World 2013: Apocalypse in Hollywood") intend to buy the rights to shoot a television series based on the graphic novel. The adaptation will also involve Eric Kripke, creator of the popular show Supernatural .
The main characters of the comic are a group of special agents whose goal is to maintain order in the world of superheroes and villains by any means.
The problem for McKay at one time was the film's budget - to create it, the filmmaker needed about $ 100 million . And since the printed original is full of violent scenes, the full-length version should have been rated R . As it turned out, Hollywood studios were not ready to host such a project.
Rogen and Goldberg have experience working with the AMC channel - they worked on the pilot episode of the "Preacher" ( Preacher ), also based on the Ennis comic. By the way, the show has already received an order for a full season. But, according to the source, the producers may sell their new project to another cable channel.
