With Preacher on the way to AMC this spring, it looks like Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are keeping busy. Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that an adaptation of The Boys – the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series – for Cinemax.
The series is set in a world where there are superheroes, but those superheroes are egomaniacal, self-centered, and varied levels of depraved. Led by Billy Butcher, the titular Boys are tasked as fixers, keeping the superhero populace in line when messes happen. Think of them as super powered versions of Ray Donovan.
Known for its graphic language and very mature content, The Boys looks to be a perfect fit for a channel like Cinemax. No premiere date has been announced but Monkeys Fighting Robots will keep you updated as The Boys is a fan favorite and casting should be very interesting as this project comes together.
