A Live-Action, Zombie-Filled "Archie" Film?

By Garth Franklin Thursday June 6th 2013 01:42PM

Warner Bros. Pictures has closed deals for a live action adaptation of the classic "Archie" comics books. There's a potential twist though - zombies.

"Glee" and "Carrie" remake scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is penning the script. Aguirre-Sacasa has familiarity with the material, earlier this year he signed on to pen "Afterlife With Archie" - a supplemental line of "Archie" comics that sees the characters caught in a zombie apocalypse.

Whether that approach, or a more traditional "Archie", will be brought to the screen in this film adaptation isn't sure yet. What is certain is that "Pitch Perfect" director Jason Moore will helm the project, while Roy Lee and Dan Lin will produce.
