Manfredi and Hay Adapting The Boys

Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay will adapt The Boys for Columbia Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Neal H. Moritz and his Columbia-based Original Films are producing the project, which adapts the comic book created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

The comic follows the adventures of a CIA squad, known informally as “the boys,” whose job is to keep watch on the proliferation of superheroes and, if necessary, intimidate or eliminate them.

Manfredi and Hay also wrote the comic book adaptation R.I.P.D., which is in development at Universal.
