Almost 20 years after the movie and more than 40 years since the original TV series premiered, Charlie’s Angels is getting another reboot.
If you think it’s unnecessary to remake the film version that starred Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, think again – according to star Kristen Stewart.
“It’s kind of like a ‘woke’ version,” Stewart told Variety.
“There’s a kitsch nature to the last ones that was super fun, but nowadays, if you see a woman in combat, everything should be something completely and utterly well within their ability … it’s still going to be fun and Charlie’s Angels-y, but will be current and modern.”
So, probably no scenes like this, then:
To make it more contemporary, the character of Bosley, played by a man in the previous iterations, will be played by a woman, Elizabeth Banks. The movie will also have a central theme of women helping and lifting each other up, as Stewart explained.
There will be a “whole network of angels,” she said. “It’s not just three. Women across the entire globe are connected and helping each other.”
The Charlie’s Angels reboot is expected to be released in 2019.
