Time to go to work! Production begins on Elizabeth Banks' Charlie's Angels

As more female-led film projects continue to dominate the Hollywood news cycle, PITCH PERFECT and THE HUNGER GAMES alumna Elizabeth Banks has announced that production has begun on her upcoming CHARLIE'S ANGELS reboot. In addition to serving as the film's director, Banks will also co-write the screenplay alongside Doug Miro (NARCOS) and Carlo Bernard (THE GREAT WALL, THE UNINVITED). As previously revealed by Sony, the triple-threat trifecta of Angels will be played by Kristen Stewart (AMERICAN ULTRA, PERSONAL SHOPPER), Naomi Harris (POWER RANGERS) and Ella Balinska (TIERS OF THE TROPICS, HUNTED), who will be joined by Elizabeth Banks and X-MEN alum Patrick Stewart for the pic. Interestingly enough, both Banks and Stewart are slated to play the part of Bosley, which lends to the report that the upcoming film will see the Angels initiative going global for their new cinematic chapter.

Originally, CHARLIE'S ANGELS was a television crime drama that ran from 1976-1981 starring Kate JacksonFarrah Fawcett, and Jaclyn Smith. The show featured all three ladies getting into some pretty outrageous super spy scenarios, with each mission curiously calling for them to often wear as little as possible to complete the job.

Back in 2000, director McG helmed a reboot of the classic TV show with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu leading the charge. A sequel to the comedic spy adventure was then released in 2003 titled CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL-THROTTLE, which added Demi Moore to the cast or returning characters. Banks and Max Handelman will produce the reboot via their Brownstone production banner as part of a partnership with Elizabeth Cantillon and Doug Belgrad who will co-finance via 2.0 Entertainment.

CHARLIE'S ANGELS will get to work in theaters on September 27, 2019.
