Charlie’s Angels photos reveal first official look at the new team
Sony Pictures has released the first look photos for director Elizabeth Banks’ upcoming Charlie’s Angels, teasing the group chemistry between the badass trio. Also featuring our first look at Noah Centineo’s character, you can check out the full photos below.
Banks has confirmed that the upcoming film will not serve as a reboot or a remake of the iconic spy franchise, but it will be a continuation that connects to the original series and films.
“If you were rich in 1976, you only got richer. Charles Townsend is richer than ever, so he’s grown the business into a global spy agency.” Banks told EW.
The first character details of the new team have also been revealed, giving us an idea on each of the characters role in the team.“Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart), the hard-partying, highly skilled wild card; Jane Kano (Ella Balinska), the ex-MI6 muscle of the group; and Elena Houghlin (Aladdin’s Naomi Scott), the MIT-trained scientist who, Banks says, serves as ‘the heart of the movie’.”
The new Charlie’s Angels film will star Kristen Stewart (Personal Shopper), Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) and Ella Balinska (Casualty) as the film’s titular trio. Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (writers and producers for the Netflix series Narcos) co-wrote the script for the film. The cast also includes breakout star Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), Jonathan Tucker (Westworld), Sam Claflin (Adrift) as well as Patrick Stewart, Djimon Hounsou, and Banks who are all reportedly playing the role of “Bosley” in the project. How that will work remains to be seen.
The franchise began with a TV show that ran from 1976-1981 starring Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd. There were two films, Charlie’s Angels in 2000 and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle in 2003, starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. The sequel added Demi Moore.
The film will be produced by Banks and Max Handelman via their Brownstone production company along with Elizabeth Cantillon and Doug Belgrad who is co-financing through his 2.0 Entertainment banner. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the film for Sony.
Charlie’s Angels is set to make its debut on November 15.
