Cast revealed for Charlie's Angels reboot
Director Elizabeth Banks has found her angels.
Sources tell Variety that Sony has set Kristen Stewart, "Aladdin's" Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska to star in its reboot of "Charlie's Angels." Banks will also be joining the trio as Bosley.
Variety first reported that Stewart was being eyed for one of the leads prior to the other two being tapped.
Scott is set to star in the upcoming live-action "Aladdin," in which she plays Jasmine. The actress already had a rapport with Banks from working together on 2017's "Power Rangers." Scott starred as the Pink Ranger, with Banks as villain Rita Repulsa.
Balinska is a British actress best known for her work on "Midsomer Murders".
The most recent draft of the script is written by Jay Basu and Banks, based on earlier drafts by Craig Mazin and Semi Chellas.
Banks will also produce with her producing partner Max Handelman under their Brownstone Productions banner. Doug Belgrad is also a producer and will co-finance through his 2.0 Entertainment. Elizabeth Cantillon will also produce.
The movie's release date is September 27, 2019.
The film will focus on the next generation of Angels working for the mysterious Charlie. Since the original films, the Townsend Agency has grown considerably and gone global, providing security and intelligence services to a wide variety of private clients with offices and highly-trained teams worldwide. This film focuses on one of those teams.
