The Boys had become The Lost Boys when Columbia Pictures decided to drop the film adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic series. Adam McKay had been signed to direct the “$100 million, rated-R, anti-superhero movie” and was left high and dry when the studio passed it up.
However! It seems that The Lost Boys have been saved. McKay, who starts shooting Anchorman: The Legend Continues in February, let it slip on Twitter that The Boys is still a thing. Turns out Paramount picked it up and it’s in the works. He ended up deleting the Tweet, but smart people took screen caps and now we have the proof in the pudding. (Mmm, pudding…)
Looking forward to finally seeing this superhero satire hit the big screen!
