There's an Archie movie in the works! And it may include...Zombies?

Well, initial Zombie rumors have been dispelled, but we can still hold out hope.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a writer for the TV show Glee, will provide the script. Aguirre-Sacasa has worked with the character before, having written the Archie Meets Glee comic books.

Archie, Betty, and Veronica

While the plot was originally described as Archie taking on zombies, the film is now being talked about as a teenaged midlife crisis movie, which takes place just before graduation.

Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore is attached to direct.

Who do you think should play Archie in the live-action film? Let us know in the comments!

The Jackson family is in the news a lot this week, following an alleged Paris Jackson suicide attempt.

Yesterday, police hurried to Katherine Jackson's home, where Paris resides, after a report of gunfire was called in.

Once they got there, police learned that nothing had in fact happened. The call, it turns out, was an apparent prank.

Just what the Jackson family needs right now!

LAPD Spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed that the cops did indeed show up to the residence, but that "it was nothing."

He added, "That house has had a lot of activity lately, so we sent a unit there."

We're definitely glad there was no gunfire. But the Paris Jackson saga is surely still unfolding.

Despite the "You are not alone" tag, Man of Steel is not a Michael Jackson biopic (though how are there not already six of those?). 

It's a Superman biopic.

...Scratch that, I'm being informed that Superman is not real and this is a fictional film based on a comic book. Also, my delete key is broken.

Check out three new Man of Steel character posters:
