The Archie comic books are about to become a live theater performance that will hit the Broadway stage. Adam McKay and 'Funny Or Die' have collaborated to create the first Broadway performance based on the Archie comic book.

The play will include all of the traditionally noted characters from the books such as Veronica, Betty and Jughead. Adam McKay is currently working on a book that will be translated into a musical adaptation of Archie and his friends from Riverdale.

The quirky comic books have been a large part of American culture since the 1970s. This massive tribute to the ongoing series will be filled with high emotions, humor and romance. While the play is still in the works there are already rumors that Will Ferrell and Archie CEO Jon Goldwater and CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will oversee the entire production.
