Isn't Roberto Aguire-Sacasa the guy who did the gay Archie play?

If so, what is his thing with Archie?

/I only remember him as the guy who Bill Jemas fired Mark Waid and Mike Weiringo from Fantastic Four for, and had to create a second F4 title for him after fans revolted and got Waid and Ringo re-hired.

Haven't we all been asking the same question to Betty and Veronica and Jughead for decades?

Jughead has Kevin Keller now.

...and they could really do a relevant "issues" storyline and have Mr. Weatherbee take Archie as his lover.

Sounds great until you consider Shia Labeouf as Archie.

S-Mart sends Ash Williams to Riverdale to open a new store,  but things go awry when Moose finds an old and creepy book in the discount bin and accidentally reads aloud from it

I'd buy that

Waid and 'Ringo has a yes, fantastic run on Fantastic Four. Weiringo died way too young.

Also, a 1940's/'50's period Archie film or GTFO.

Jughead would eat burgers, Reggie would be an arrogant jerk, Moose would be a violent dimwit, and Archie would be caught in a love triangle between Betty and Veronica. Just like every single issue of the comic.
 
2013-06-06 05:57:24 PM  
Folks, let's get down to the real issue here: who would play Betty and Veronica?

How about Archie Bunker's Place characters instead, that way I can watch Danielle Brisebois get farked by a tree.

Mandy Moore in place of Amy Adams. Amy Adams has the cute but not the sexy factor.

Didn't they introduce a redhead foil for both in the 90s?

Wasn't that the premise of The Rocky Horror Picture Show?

Alternate title for that article?  "Cocaine Making A Comeback in Tinseltown!"
 
2013-06-06 07:56:14 PM  
Natural fit for the comics, but it seems like it would be hard to market as a film. Is is an Archie movie? Is it a zombie movie? Is the audience for one really the audience for the other?

Maybe that's the type of thing they need to do to make it a big holiday blockbuster, but it seems like a hard enough task just making a decent Archie movie without having to shoehorn in a zombie plot.

Look at it this way, if it gets made, the XXX parody with Betty and Veronica wouldn't be far behind. That would be worth waiting for, I think.

Maybe I'm just getting grumpy in my old-ish age, but the zombie apocalypse theme as a genre is starting to wear out its welcome. Romero did it with social commentary and Fulci did it with a sort of Lovecraftian sense of dread, but more recent films seem more like having a zombie film for the sake of having a zombie film. As a more interesting idea for an Archie horror film, how about taking bizarre Archie panels out of context and having someone like David Lynch create a plot out of it?

If it has to be some "Archie meets X" theme, why not do something that hasn't been done to death? How about Archie meets Cthulhu? Archie could find a copy of the Necronomicon and then proceed to recruit the rest of the gang into his cult of the Great Old Ones. At one point they could even do something really strange like convincing Mr. Weatherbee to mate with a Deep One.

How about remaking Streets of Fire but with Archie characters

Team Midge. I'd wreck that while Betty sat on my face. Veronica can go be a flaming closet case elsewhere..

Big Ethel is the one you'd really want. She's fairly attractive, but doesn't think she is. She'd probably do some freaky shiat if you showed her some attention.

Aren't they supposed to be teenagers. I know sometimes movies cast old, but they're both 30 this year. Let's not go with the Stockard Channing in "Grease" approach, OK?

Perhaps...

Aimee Teegarden
Selena Gomez
Lucy Hale
Chloe Moretz
Hayden Panettiere
India Eisley
Molly Quinn (she could pull off brunette)
Zoey Deutch
Mike Boorem
Victoria Justice
Ariel Winter
Ashley Benson
and how about that Bassinger/Baldwin kid who's starting to make the rounds? Haven't seen her act, but if she can...

Anyway, mix & match.

I vaguely remember something about the idea of a remake of Nekromantik (IMDB link but still possibly NSFW) starring Shia Labeouf, but I can't remember if I saw a rumor on the internet, had a dream about it, or just made it up as a joke when I was inebriated.

No way. Midge is a dirty freak already. Look at her and Moose, you know they're into some serious nasty farkin', especially hate sex.

Midge looks like a girl that would have you all the way down her throat and a finger up your *ss before your pants were even off. The kind of girl that says, "wait right there, I gotta get my box of stuff"--and comes back dragging a suitcase and a gimp mask in her other hand.
