Archie Feature Film Coming from Warner Bros.
Archie Comics has announced that they have teamed with Warner Bros. for the first feature film featuring Archie and the gang from Riverdale. Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) will direct from a script by Archie Meets Glee scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (The Town that Dreaded Sundown).
Roy Lee and Dan Lin will produce, while Jon Goldwater, Krishnan Menon, and Jon Silk will serve as Executive Producers.
"We are thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. on this project and have complete faith in their ability to bring Archie to the big screen in a way the fans will love," said Archie Comics Publisher/Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. "Having Roberto write and Jason direct is Archie's 'Dream Team.' Also, without Dan, Roy, Krish, and Jon, we could not have made this happen."
"Jason [Moore] and I have been friends for a long time, and this is a complete passion project for everyone involved, " Aguirre-Sacasa said, "Archie is the ultimate teenager and this movie will be the ultimate teenage movie-in the grand tradition of Sixteen Candles and Ferris Bueller's Day Off. We are so grateful to Jon [Goldwater] for inviting us to this dance."
