Valiant Comic’s Archer and Armstrong is being adapted for the big screen.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Valiant Comic’s Archer and Armstrong will be making the jump to the big screen. Archer and Armstrong first appeared in Archer and Armstrong #0 in 19992. (Amazon) has some cheap copies. What is not so cheap is the Gold Variant.
Valiant Entertainment, the independent comic publisher behind Harbinger, Bloodshot and X-O Manowar, is continuing its move into movie production. Heat Vision has learned that the big screen version of action-comedy comic book Archer & Armstrong has found its writer and director.
The adaptation is quickly moving forward with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer on board to direct, according to sources close to the project. Terry Rossio is attached as a writer. Rossio is known for work on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and was recently named the leader of Legendary’s MonsterVerse writers room. Joining Fleischer as producers on the project are Jason Brown, The Mummy’s Sean Daniel and Valiant CEO and CCO Dinesh Shamdasani.
The project is being developed in-house before being shopped to studios.
