What a time to be alive. Stan Lee, perhaps best known for creating Stripperella, is co-producing a live-action Bollywood remake of Archie. The Bollywood film will

"reimagine the classic characters like Archie, Betty, Veronica, Reggie, Moose and Jughead as Indians and will feature all the classic elements of the hugely popular comic book series."

Graphic India, which previously created the Indian superhero Chakra with Lee, has partnered with Archie Comics for the film. No release date or other details have been given.

Graphic India CEO Sharad Devarajan added that "Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead have been a source of inspiration for numerous Bollywood films over the years, and now it's time to take them fully into Bollywood in an exciting new twist of a story that we have planned."
