PremiseEdit

Charlie's Angels have always provided security and investigative skills to private clients. Now the Townsend Agency has expanded internationally with the smartest and most highly-trained women from all over the globe: multiple teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys, completing the toughest missions around the world. When a young systems engineer blows the whistle on a dangerous technology, these Angels are called into action, putting their lives on the line to protect us all.

CastEdit

Additionally, Jonathan Tucker has been cast as the film's villain.[3] Chris Pang and Nat Faxon have been cast in undisclosed roles.

ProductionEdit

On September 15, 2015, it was announced that Sony Pictures Entertainment was rebooting the Charlie's Angels franchise, and Elizabeth Banks was in talks to direct the film.[4] Banks would also produce the film along with her Brownstone Productions' partner Max Handelman.[4][5] On December 16, 2015, Sony hired Evan Spiliotopoulos to write the script for the reboot film.[5]

In July 2018, it was announced that Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska would play the leading trio of the fighting team, and Banks would also appear as Bosley, with the film featuring multiple characters named Bosley.[6][7] Doug Belgrad would also produce the film through his 2.0 Entertainment, along with Elizabeth Cantillon, Banks and Handelman, while Banks and Jay Basu wrote the screenplay with the early drafts by Craig Mazin and Semi Chellas. In September, Patrick Stewart was cast as the second Bosley.[8] That same month, Luis Gerardo Méndez and Jonathan Tucker joined the cast of the film, with Djimon Hounsou cast as the third Bosley.[9][10][11] In October 2018, Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, Chris Pang and Nat Faxon joined the cast of the film.[12][13][14]

It was later revealed that the new movie would not be a reboot or a remake of the franchise but rather a continuation that will incorporate the events of the original TV series and the McG-directed 2000s films.[21] It was also revealed on the movie's official site that Drew Barrymore, who produced from the previous films and played as Dylan Sanders, will return as an executive producer. Leonard Goldberg, who produced the original series and the previous films, returned as well.[22]
