Good Morning Charlie! First Look At 'Charlie's Angels' Reboot
The Elizabeth Banks-directed reboot wrapped production in December, and now we're getting our first looks at the refresh of the iconic flick, which of course was based on the popular television show, which debuted in 1976.
The new Charlie's Angels stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska, with Banks herself taking on the role of Bosley. In a twist on the OG series, there will be “a security and intelligence service that has teams around the world,” each led by a different Bosley.
“All of the Angels have been played by different women and have had different names, but the Bosley character was always named Bosley no matter who played him. We thought, ‘Well, that must mean it’s more than a name,’” Banks said in an interview with EW.
Rather than a straight-up remake, Banks added that it will instead be a more of a "continuation" on the previous film -- which starred Lucy Lui, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore -- as well as the original series, and will focus on teamwork between the trio.
“It was important to me to make a movie about women working together and supporting each other, and not make a movie about their romantic entanglements or their mother they don’t call enough,” Baks revealed.
"When I’m at work, I don’t talk about those things. I get on with my job. It felt important to do that for the Angels, to treat them with the respect their skill set demands.”
“It’s a really exciting moment for female-driven films,” Banks added. “Audiences are really looking for those aspirational stories about real and relatable characters, and I think the women in my movie are definitely real and relatable, but most importantly, I think they’re really fun.”
Despite the immense popularity of its predecessors, fans have already expressed hesitation on a remake, with some outright rejecting it.
Others, however, are a bit more excited to witness a new era of butt-kicking bad b*tches.
Charlie's Angels is expected to hit cinemas on November 14th, 2019.
