Riverdale Header

I loved Archie comics as a kid. I could totally see the difference between Betty and Veronica, and always thought Veronica was prettier (we are both brunettes), but did think he should end up with Betty. I never thought Archie was hot, just kinda sexless.

Well, not anymore. Check out the trailer and synopsis for The CW’s new show Riverdale, below.

Afterlife with Archie Header

For as long as the Archie comics have been in circulation, it’s incredible that it has taken this long for a film adaptation to be produced. Maybe it can be attributed to the fact that Archie comics have long been known to lack the same luster as something that comes from DC, Marvel, or Dark Horse. But Warner Brothers has finally found a way for the iconic comic book character to come alive on the big screen, with a slight twist of course.

It’s being reported that Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore has just signed a deal to helm an adaptation of Afterlife with Archie, a spinoff comic in which Archie, Jughead, Betty, and the rest of the gang having a run in with the undead.

Carrie Remake Header

Chloe Moretz may have had a lot of criminals’ blood on her hands in Kick-Ass, but she will have a different blood all over herself in the new adaptation of Stephen King’s horror story Carrie. The first of many marketing photos are actually starting off in a pretty big way, with Moretz wearing a prom dress covered in blood, which was the pinnacle scene in the original movie.

Click below to see a larger version of the photo above and a photo of Julianne Moore as Carrie’s mother.

Carrie

A remake of the 1976 Stephen King adaptation, Carrie, has been in the works for a bit now, and a star is already in place with Kick-Ass and Let Me In star Chloe Moretz set for the lead role.

Chloe Moretz

In the past two years alone she’s played an ass-kicking superhero and a blood-sucking vampire. Now it looks like Chloe Moretz has a date to a prom and a burning high school in her screen future.

The young actress, best known for playing Hit Girl in the violent action-comedy Kick-Ass as well as the haunting horror film Let Me In and most recently Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning 3D fantasy Hugo, has just been confirmed for the title role in the new film version of Carrie. Based on Stephen King‘s first novel published in 1974, Carrie was adapted for the screen in 1976 by filmmaker Brian DePalma with Sissy Spacek in the title role of a shy high school student who uses her emerging telekinetic powers to take revenge on her tormentors. Both Spacek and Piper Laurie, who played Carrie’s religious fanatic mother, earned Academy Award nominations for their performances.
