THE BOYS "Still Alive" At Paramount With Adam McKay At The Helm
The latest on the troubled adaptation of Garth Ennis' controversial comic series is that it is "in active development" at Paramount, and the Anchor Man: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy director is still attached to bring it to the screen..
A while ago we heard that Paramount were interested in Adam McKay to direct their adaptation of the ultra-violent (and ultra everything else) comic series from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, but there was never any official word on it. Since then the director has pretty much confirmed that he was interested, and they were trying to make it happen, but all has been quiet for quite a while - until now. A Tweet from Variety's Jeff Schneider has prompted the following reply from McKay..
Although that's still not a definite "moving forward", it's something! Hopefully this happens, as the potential for a really great - completely bat-shit crazy - CBM is there. We'll update with more if we hear anything.
