The Boys gets picked up by Amazon

So there was some heat on this franchise a while back with Seth Rogen having it in his sights but now its official that Amazon will pick this up in partnership with Sony and get it into production soon.

If you haven't read it I suggest you do its a brilliant read very violent and dark. Its about a government team of individuals who keep superheroes in check and take them out if necessary. Its a bold challenging production if they follow the comics, so will be interesting to see how this one turns out. One of the main characters is Hughie who's actually based on Simon Pegg. It would be interesting if they could get him involved in the project it would certainly add some Kudos.

The one to get is The Boys 1 although this comes with a price tag of £40 + but with this news I think it will go higher as the series comes to air.
