‘Cafe Society’ and ‘Personal Shopper’ actress Kristen Stewart and Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o (‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi,’ ‘Black Panther’) are in early talks for Sony’s reboot of ‘Charlie’s Angels.’
The original series ran for five seasons between 1976 and 1981 and centred around three female detectives (played by Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith) who worked to solve cases for a mysterious benefactor named Charlie and his associate, Bosley.
Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu took on the roles of the crime-fighting “Angels” for a big screen outing in 2000. The tongue-in-cheek action/comedy grossed €243 million worldwide, spawning the 2003 sequel ‘Charlie’s Angles: Full Throttle.’ The less said about the 2011 TV reboot, the better.
Elizabeth Banks, who made her directorial debut with ’Pitch Perfect 2,’ is attached to direct the reboot, with release pencilled in summer 2019.
