Seth Rogen may not be stopping at one live-action adaptation of a Garth Ennis-written comic book series. According to Birth. Movies. Death., the actor/writer/producer/director is reportedly shopping a TV version of “The Boys,” created by Ennis and Darick Robertson, to cable networks, along with his creative partner Evan Goldberg and “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke.
The article reports that it’s still early in the development process, with the producers focused on finding a home for the show. Rogen and Goldberg teamed with “Breaking Bad” veteran Sam Catlin for the TV adaptation of Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s “Preacher,” which is scheduled to debut on AMC next year.
“The Boys” debuted in 2006 as part of DC Comics‘s WildStorm imprint, starring a team of superpowered CIA operatives tasked with keeping reckless superheroes under control. Like “Preacher,” it utilizes Ennis’ penchant for over-the-top violence and humor. After six issues, DC cancelled “The Boys” due to reported issues with the book’s anti-superhero themes, and the series was then picked up by Dynamite Entertainment, where it remained for the duration of its 72-issue run, concluding in 2012.
