Do we need another Charlie’s Angel remake? Probably
not. Will I definitely see it if it stars Kristen Stewart
and/or Lupita Nyong’o? Yes indeed.
Charlie’s Angels is getting another reboot, just
seventeen years after the Drew Barrymore/Cameron Diaz/Lucy Liu
remake. And according to a report in Variety casting
directors are looking at Stewart and Nyong’o to play two of the
private investigators. Which, by the way, did you
remember that the Angels were police-trained, private
investigators? Because I did not! Seems like kind of a boring
classification for all the karate-chopping and actual physical
fighting they had to do.
As for the remake, the eyeing of Stewart for the movie is
interesting because, as Variety points out, she has
mostly been acting in indie films as of late like Personal
Shopper and the forthcoming JT LeRoy movie as
Savannah Knoop. The movie,
set to come out the summer of 2019, is also being directed by
actress and Pitch Perfect director Elizabeth Banks,
continuing the Wonder Woman trend of women proving
they are certainly capable of shooting action movies.
