A big screen outing of Valiant Entertainment’s comics title ‘Archer & Armstrong’ is in the works over at Sony Pictures with ‘Zombieland’ and ‘Gangster Squad’ helmer Ruben Fleischer attached to direct.

Created by Jim Shooter, Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton, the comic tells of the unlikely friendship between Armstrong, an immortal warrior who has become a drunken self-styled philosopher throughout the centuries, and Archer, a teenage prodigy who has been trained since childhood to murder him.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series scribe Terry Rossio will pen the project. Jason Brown, Sean Daniel and Valiant CEO and CCO Dinesh Shamdasani will produce.
