For the unversed, The Archies is an iconic comic book that capsules the adventures of Archie Andrews and his squad including Veronica, Betty, Jughead and Reggie. The comic has been adapted on celluloid a couple of times, with the most famous adaptation being Riverdale.
Netflix has partnered with Archie Comics for the film, which will be set in 1960s India. The Archies is produced by Zoya and her longtime collaborator Reema Kagti under their production house Tiger Baby. Zoya announced the project on social media last year in November.
