Saw this over at Newsarama and had a chuckle:

Screenwriters Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay (Aeon Flux, The Tuxedo) will pen Columbia Pictures adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertsons series The Boys. Columbia optioned the comic back in February. [The Hollywood Reporter]
It must be disheartening when the writers entrusted to adapt your book are clearly a pair of idiots. Ennis must be sitting at home (or more accurately, in some dive of a bar in New York), wearily thinking "couldn't it have been William Goldman or Andrew Davies, just this once?".
