Adam McKay wants Simon Pegg for The Boys' Wee Hughie

CHUD recently asked could-be The Boys director Adam McKay if he'd want Simon Pegg — who was the inspiration for protagonist Wee Hughie — for the film. McKay's not signed on definitely, but he's all for the idea.

Here's the exchange CHUD's Devin Faraci had with McKay:

[McKay] told me: 'I haven't officially signed on yet, so I haven't had any conversations with anyone, but he's got to do it. It has to be.'

'So if you sign on it has to be with him?' I asked.

'For sure,' McKay said.

Make it so Adam, make it so!
