Casting Call: Archie

Published August 1, 2013

In which we suggest who should star in the next big adaptation, remake, or historical film.

In 1941, Archie Andrews made his grand comic strip debut. The world read as the lovable, goofy 17-year-old navigated the halls of Riverdale High, fell in love with Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, and befriended the hopelessly awkward Jughead Jones. Based on real people, the young, small-town teens gained a cult following and quickly became household names. Due to this immense success, Warner Bros Film recently closed a deal to create an Archie comics film, resurrecting the beloved characters and even adding in… zombies. The success of an Archie horror film? Debatable, but at least the characters will remain the same.
