Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay have been engaged to adapt "The Boys" for Columbia.

Neal H. Moritz and his Columbia-based Original Films shingle are producing the project, which adapts the comic book created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

The book follows the adventures of a CIA squad, known informally as "the boys," whose job is to keep watch on the proliferation of superheroes and, if necessary, intimidate or eliminate them.

Kickstart's Jason Netter is producing, while attorney-cum-producer Ken Levin is exec producing.

UTA-repped Manfredi and Hay have "Aeon Flux," "The Tuxedo" and "Crazy/Beautiful" among their credits. They also wrote the comic book adaptation "R.I.P.D.," which is in development at Universal.
