Archie comics to hit the big screen… with zombies!

Archie Comics

Warner Bros has finalized a deal to make “Archie” comics into a real film.

Here is the catch – there will be zombies!

Afterlife with Archie” writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been brough on to write the screenplay with Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) as director for the film. The Afterlife with Archie series has the Riverdale characters battling zombies. Combining a classic storyline with horror stories, this will not be the Archie we remember reading as kids.

Here is the story: ‘Jughead’s beloved pooch Hotdog is run over by Reggie in his roadster. He convinces Sabrina to hatch a spell to bring back the pooch, but when Hotdog bites Jughead, he soon craves flesh.’ The first story arc is called Escape from Riverdale with the second one called. Betty RIP.

The last time there was an Archie movie was in 1990 on television sans zombies called Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again. (also known as Archie: Return to Riverdale)”. Hopefully it won’t be this cheesy.
