The site formerly known as Badass Digest is reporting that Seth Rogen is keen on bringing another Garth Ennis property to TV.  The Boys, a 2006-2012 comic series from Ennis and artist Darick Robertson is reportedly the next gritty, ultra-violent comic book  series Rogen wants to adapt for TV.  Rogen and his producing partner, Evan Goldberg are teaming up with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke to develop the project and are currently shopping the series to cable networks.  Birth.Movies.Death cautions that the development team are in the very early stages as the focus is on Preacher at the moment.  The real question, is whether The Boys follows Preacher to AMC or if the show is headed for premium cable.  Where would you like to see a potential adaptation of The Boys land, AMC or HBO? 


Is THE BOYS Adaptation Finally Gaining Traction? An Update From The Screenwriters

The Boys is an American creator-owned comic book series, written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Darick Robertson. It was originally published by Wildstorm before moving to Dynamite Entertainment.

The series is set between 2006-2008 in a world where superheroes exist. However, most of the superheroes in the series' universe are corrupted by their celebrity status and often engage in reckless behavior, compromising the safety of the world. For this reason, a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as "The Boys", is charged with monitoring the superhero community.

In February 2008, Columbia Pictures optioned the comic for a film adaptation, to be produced by Neal H. Moritz. Both, Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay were brought in to write the initial screenplay. In August 2010, Adam McKay signed on to direct and began a rewrite with hopes of shooting in January 2011. Columbia Pictures declined to renew their option on film rights in February 2011. In August 2011, McKay announced that the project had moved to Paramount with the same creative team intact.

'Bout time.

As long as his not acting in it should be a worthy watch.

HBO, definitely HBO. Too bad Simon Pegg's too old to play Hughie :/

Nobody wants to see the Cowboys on TV.

Hellz yeah!!! Never really read Preacher, but loved the Boys. HBO and push it as close to the ends or moral decency as they can, it is Ennis after all.

HHmmmm, wonder how Walking Dead fans (tv only) would find Crossed?

I want a show starring Dirty Mike and the Boys.

Every week they go around looking for Toyota Priuses to have soup kitchens in.

I would much prefer this as an R rated movie, but if they are making it or tv then its better than nothing I suppose, also Simon peg has to be in it, he can still look the part given a bit of make-up.

Let it go to HBO AMC is waay too cheap and interferes and waters down their shows too much.

Never heard of it. I'll see what Preacher brings to the table before I allow myself to be interested in another Rogen production.

I say HBO, its a pretty violent series. Seth should make sure that Preacher is good before starting another project.
Baka - 10/13/2015, 9:13 AM
Also if it goes to AMC dont expect a proper Hard R rating

Never read it.

better suited for the garbage.
JustBruceokAl - 10/14/2015, 8:35 AM
My goodness HBO is the ONLY way.. the first issue is the defining standpoint of the entire series & the first episode should be the same...
lukehero - 10/14/2015, 3:25 PM
You can't put that stuff on tv...period. Even HBO would have to cut out a lot of the hardcore stuff, so what would be the point?
