A new generation of Charlie’s Angels will soon be ushered in. Elizabeth Banks will direct Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinksa, who will play the three Angels working for the mysterious Charles Townsend and his detective agency in a reboot of the 2000 action comedy, based on the original 1970s TV series.
Charlie’s Angels have been known to provide security and investigative skills to private clients, and now the agency has expanded internationally, with the smartest, most fearless, most trained women in the world. When the whistle is blown on a dangeorus technology, the Angels are are called into service.
Banks will also be in front of the camera, playing Bosley, the face of the enigmatic detective agency. The project, in fact, has Banks’s fingerprints all over it—she wrote the screenplay, with help from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn.
“Charlie’s Angels,” she says, “is one of the original brands to celebrate the empowered woman since its debut in the ‘70s. This film honors the legacy of Charles Townsend and his agency while introducing a new era of modern and global Angels. I couldn’t be more excited to work with Kristen, Naomi, and Ella to bring this chapter to fans around the world.”
The reboot is set for a November 15 release.
