Funny or Die is really expanding their brand with their weatherman competition and now this Archie stage production.
Adam McKay is set to write it, while Funny or Die and Archie Comics will collaborate on the actual production at a date TBD.
McKay commented on the project, “Archie represents a bygone era of America and like all bygone eras, there are elements we miss and elements that should be bygone. This will be a musical that deals with both those realities in a bright, colorful and slightly demented way.”
So, with that in mind, you can look forward to both this Archie and A Confederacy of Dunces done live on stages in the not so distant future.
