Amazon’s Adaptation of the Ultra-violent “The Boys” Has a Lead!



The Hunger GamesJack Quaid is set as a lead in Amazon’s straight-to-series drama “The Boys”, from “Supernatural” creator and “Timeless” co-creator Eric Kripke, “Preacher‘s” Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen and Sony Pictures TV, reports Deadline.

Written by Kripke based on the ultra-violent comic book by Garth Ennis (“Preacher”) & Darick Robertson and directed by Goldberg & Rogen, “The Boys” is set in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame. It revolves around a group of vigilantes known informally as “the boys,” who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.

Quaid will play Hughie (who was allegedly modeled after Simon Pegg). After the death of his girlfriend by fast-moving Superhero A-Train (Jessie Usher), Hughie is approached by a mysterious “government agent” named Billy Butcher, who drags Hughie into a covert war against a group of Superheroes who are not what everyone thinks they are.

Quaid, son of Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan, made his screen debut in The Hunger Games and its follow-up, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
