The Boys themselves. Yes, not all of them are boys.

After being dropped by Sony/Columbia earlier this year, ultra-violent, sexually explicit anti-superhero movie The Boys – based on the controversial comic by Preacher writer Garth Ennis – is back on.

Anchorman director Adam McKay revealed on Twitter that talk of the flick’s demise was premature, saying to a fan, “Paramount picked it up and we’re still developing.”
