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.

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.[2] Banks would also produce the film along with her Brownstone Productions' partner Max Handelman.[2][3] On December 16, 2015, Sony hired Evan Spiliotopoulos to write the script for the reboot film.[3]

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 their unseen boss and owner of the detective agency, Charlie Townsend.[4] 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.[5] In September, Patrick Stewart was cast to play Bosley, with the film featuring multiple characters named Bosley.[6] That same month, Luis Gerardo Méndez and Jonathan Tucker joined the cast of the film, with Djimon Hounsou cast as another Bosley.[7][8][9] In October 2018, Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, Chris Pang and Nat Faxon joined the cast of the film.[10][11][12]

Principal photography on the film began on September 24, 2018.[13] From October 2 to 7, 2018, filming took place at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany.[14] In early December 2018, filming took place at the Spice Bazaar, Veliefendi Race Course and in Sultanahmet in Istanbul, Turkey.[15][16][17] Filming completed on December 9, 2018.[18]

It was later revealed that the new movie won't be a reboot or a remake of the beloved franchise, but rather a continuation that will incorporate the events of the original TV series and the McG-directed 2000s films.[19] It was also revealed on the movie's official site that Drew Barrymore, who produced the previous movies and played in it, will be back as an executive producer. Leonard Goldberg, producer of the original series and previous movies will also be back.[20]

Charlie's Angels is scheduled to be released on November 15, 2019, by Columbia Pictures.[21] It was previously set to be released three times on June 7, 2019,[22] then September 27 and November 1 of 2019.[23]
