Live-Action ARCHIE Movie On The Way...With Zombies?

Live-Action ARCHIE Movie On The Way...With Zombies?

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has closed all deals for a live action movie based on the long running Archie comic books, but here's the twist: Joining Archie, Jughead, Veronica and co. may well be an army of the undead!



Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has finalized a deal to produce a live-action adaptation of the Archie comic series...that may also just contain Zombies. It seems Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been brought on to write the screenplay for the movie, and is also currently working on Afterlife with Archie; a series that sees the Riverdale characters taking on legions of brain-eaters -- so you can see how putting 2 and 2 together equals Zombie. Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore signed on to helm the film, with Roy Lee and Dan Lin producing and Krishnan Menon executive producing. I'm not sure how many (if any) CBMers are Archie fans, but would the Zombie twist tweak your interest at all?
