Valiant's Archer & Armstrong Getting Film Adaptation
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.15.2014

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Valiant Entertainment's Archer & Armstrong is set to become the latest comic book movie. The series was created in 1992 by Jim Shooter, Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton in 1992 and brought back by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry two years ago.

Rumors of a movie started last week. Valiant is working with the Sean Daniel Company (The Best Man Holiday, remakes of Ben Hur, The Mummy) to produce. BenDavid Grabinski (Cost of Living, Machinima's Enormous and Barry Sonnenfeld's The How-To Guide for Saving the World). The script was funded by Valiant and Valiant CEO Dinesh Shamdasani will produce with Sean Daniel and Jason Brown.

The series follows Obadiah Archer, who meets the "Great Satan" he was raised to fight his entire life, only to find out it's a drunk immortal named Armstrong who doesn't care about causing the Apocalypse. However, Archer's parents and their cult might have more sinister plans.

Daniel said: "There's a reason comic fans have loved Archer & Armstrong and have treasured these characters and their legacy. [The current series is] some of the funniest material you'll read in any format. [I'm] honored that Valiant would partner with us on this and Shadowman because they're the most unconventional of heroes, and it's that boldness that make us so excited to bring these characters to life."

This will be the third Valiant title adapted after Shadowman (with the Sean Daniel Company and J. Micahel Straczynski writing) and Bloodshot (with Sony producing, Matthew Vaughn directing and Jeff Wadlow writing).
