ARCHER & ARMSTRONG Movie In Development

Valiant's Archer & Armstrong has a modest but very, very loyal following. Could a big screen adaptation be just the trick to setup the Jim Shooter, BWS and Bob Layton created characters for mainstream success?

Archer & Armstrong is a Valaint Comics title first published in July 1992, and were created by Jim Shooter, Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton. The series follows Obadiah Archer, a youth whose near-death experience and training from Buddhist monks in the Himalayas has imparted upon him exceptional martial arts skills. The series' other protagonist is Armstrong, who meets Archer through a chance encounter that leads to a series of rapidly escalating adventures. If you're a fan or the outline piques your interest, you'll be pleased to know that according to AICN, there's a live-action, motion picture in development, based on the recent run on the series from Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry.

Said to also appear in the film are the One Percent, the Eternal Warrior and host of other Valiant characters. There are quite a few other Valiant titles in the works as well, including a Shadowman feature currently being written by J. Michael Straczynski and a Bloodshot feature film penned by Jeff Wadlow.
