Adam McKay is coming off the high of a $35.6 million opening for "The Other Guys" and is readying plans to adapt the ultra-dark comic series, "The Boys," for the big screen. He's also eyeing a smaller project that would mark his most mature cinematic work to date: a darkly comic take on the life of Lee Atwater, the GOP political consultant perhaps most infamous for George Bush's race-baiting Willie Horton during the 1988 presidential campaign.
In an interview with MTV News, McKay talked about why the project interests him so greatly, why the movie will be anything but preachy, and why Jim Carrey or Ed Norton might be the perfect actor to play Atwater.
