The film will focus on the next generation of Angels, working for the mysterious Charlie while providing security and intelligence services to private clients worldwide.
“Charlie’s Angels” began as a successful television series from 1976 to 1981. It was later brought to the big screen in 2000, with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu playing the Angels. The film was a major hit, earning $264.1 million; a sequel, 2003’s “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” did not excel at the domestic box office, but did well overseas.
Naomi Scott, who will star as Jasmine in Disney’s upcoming “Aladdin” remake, and British newcomer Ella Balinska, are set to join Kristen Stewart.
Elizabeth Banks, who is directing the film, will take on the role of Bosley. “’Charlie’s Angels,’ for me, is one of the original brands to celebrate the empowered woman since its debut in the ’70s,” Banks said in a statement. She is also producing the project, with her husband Max Handelman, via their Brownstone Productions company.
The movie’s release date is expected in September 2019.
