Archie The Musical Is In The Works By Ant-Man Writer Adam McKay

archie1_cov_staplesThe Riverdale gang may succeed where Spider-Man did not… as a Broadway musical. Archie and his on-going love triangle with Betty and Vernoica are being developed by Ant-Man writer Adam McKay along with Funny Or Die Productions and Archie Comics' Jon Goldwater and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

There had been a feature film in the works, but that seems to be stalled which may be why the shift of focus to a different medium. A Riverdale television series in in the works with Greg Berlanti at the helm.
