Ferrell’s director McKay looking at “The Boys”

By Staff

In the wake of “Anchorman 2” going into production limbo, Will Ferrell’s director guru Adam McKay is eyeing to helm the big screen comic book adaptation of the adult themed “The Boys.”

Buzz about this comes from “Nightmare on Elm Street” director Sam Bayer who was passed over for the job in favor of McKay.

“It’s so funny, I would die to do that comic book. From what I’ve heard from the producers on the movie is that Adam McKay is doing it. He did Anchorman, I guess. The studio is really hot on him and…” Bayer tells website Film School Rejects.

Bayer did hint that if “Nightmare” does perform well this weekend, then he might be reconsidered for the job. And it looks like luck is on Bayer’s side as “Elm Street” generated over $15 million in its first Friday.

Written by Garth Ennis, “The Boys” follows a superpowered CIA squad in the modern-day world who keeps a watch over other caped avengers; and eliminates them if necessary.

McKay’s next film is the Ferrell cop comedy “The Other Guys.”
