Because the world is round, another classic movie franchise is getting the reboot treatment: This time it’s Charlie’s Angels, and Elizabeth Banks will reportedly direct.
Originally a 1970s hit television series, Charlie’s Angels put Farrah Fawcett on the map; the blonde bombshell was, along with Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, part of a detective trio who worked for a mysterious, unseen benefactor. In 2000, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Lui, Cameron Diaz, and Bill Murray starred in a movie adaptation of the show. While the first Charlie’s Angels action movie was a hit, the sequel was a failure — despite numerous shots of Demi Moore in a bikini.
No word yet on who might be joining the cast, but we probably shouldn’t rule Banks out as one of the Angels.
