Adam McKay has confirmed that he’s directing an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ comic The Boys.
McKay confirmed the news during the panel for his upcoming action film The Other Guys: “As of today, I’m directing,” he said.
The series is set in a contemporary world very much similar to the real one, with one notable exception: a number of people have some form of superpower. The series follows a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as “The Boys”, whose job it is to keep watch on superheroes and, if necessary, intimidate or kill them.
