Greg Berlanti is probably best known for producing Arrow and The Flash but it looks like he’s planning on flexing his comicbook muscles a little further…

He is currently in discussions with Fox to get Riverdale, a drama based on the Archie comics, up and running.

The series will be set modern day and be a “subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends, exploring the surreality of life in the fictional Riverdale, albeit with a requisite twist of “darkness and weirdness” lurking beneath the town’s wholesome facade.”

The series will also feature Reggie Mantle, Jughead Jones, Kevin Keller, the gay character recently introduced in the comic, Josie and the Pussycats are also expected to turn up in the pilot if/when it happens.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
