Charlie’s Angels are preparing to return to the big screens in a new version, and the first footage of the filming was published by Entertainment Weekly, alongside the interview with film director Elizabeth Banks.
Head of production poster is former star of Twilight, Kristen Stewart. She will be Sabrina Wilson, a multi-talented tutor, and a celebrity party. Naomi Scott (which we will see in Aladdin, adaptation of Disney’s live action) will be Elena Houghlin, a technology specialist described as “the soul of the film,” and Ella Balinska will play Jane Kano, former MI6 agent, responsible with the tightest part of the missions.
Banks – who debuted in the feature movie with Pitch Perfect 2 – will also appear in the film as Bosley, the help of the “angels”. The character was rethought and adapted, so we will see under the same name two other actors: Patrick Stewart and Djimon Hounsou.
“Bosley is now a sort of rank in the organization, like Lieutenant. Until now, the “angels” have been interpreted by different actresses and have different names, but Bosley has retained its name regardless of production and who has interpreted it. We thought, for this reason, that he would be more than just a name,” Banks explained.
Banks spoke about the voice of the mysterious chief of the organization, Charlie, chosen to resemble as much as John Forsythe, who gave voice to the character in the 1970s and 2000s. The actress and the director remarked that the new Charlie’s Angels is not just a reboot, but rather a continuation of the story, in which other angel teams coexist. In Banks’ vision, over 40 years of existence, Charles Townsend’s espionage agency has grown financially and spread all over the world, which will provide the three agents with multiple disguises and cutting-edge gadgets.
