In an interview with Shock Till You Drop, director Sam Bayer threw his hat into the ring in hopes of being considered to direct a movie adaptation of Dynamite Entertainment’s The Boys.

Yeah, I’m catching my breath but I’ve been offered some stuff. There’s one comic book I really dig that I want to go after that’s bad-ass. I’d like to get it, it’s called The Boys. It’s about a group of mercenaries and they’re job is to kick the shit out of superheroes who get out of line. It doesn’t get any better than that. In the world of The Boys, superheroes are scumbags. My youngest brother is a comic book historian and he introduced me to a lot of graphic novels like “The Dark Knight.” There are some great books I don’t think people have tapped into yet.

IF The Boys were made into a film, it would have to have a NC-17 rating, and would have to star Simon Pegg.
