Directed by Bill Bindley and produced by Gulfstream Pictures, Apa will play a member of a group of teens in Chicago whose lives intersect in the summer before they head to college.
Bindley is sharing writing credit with Scott Bindley and April Prosser, with Mike Karz and Wayne Rice producing. Filming will start in late April.
Apa achieved mainstream success last year by playing Archie Andrews in the hit CW series “Riverdale,” and also had roles in the family film “A Dog’s Purpose” and the indie thriller “Altar Rock.” He is repped by UTA, Luber Rolkin Entertainment, and attorney Karl Austen of Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
