‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot moves to Nov 2019 slot

Washington: Sony is moving the release date of ‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot to November 1, 2019, to fill the slot which was recently-vacated by ‘Wonder Woman 1984’.

Sony made the announcement a few hours after Warner Bros. decided to move Gal Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ to June 5, 2020, giving the explanation that the original ‘Wonder Woman’ opened at the same time last year, reported Variety.

Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska will portray the three Angels in the film working for a detective agency. The film will focus on the next generation of Angels working for the mysterious Charlie.

Elizabeth Banks is directing as well as starring as their unseen boss, Bosley. Patrick Stewart and Djimon Hounsou will be essaying the other two Bosleys. Sam Claflin, Jonathan Tucker and Luis Gerardo Mendez have also been roped in, but their roles are still kept under wraps.

The flick is based on the television series of the same name that ran from 1976 to 1981. Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu played the role of Angels in a pair of ‘Charlie’s Angels’ movies that were released in 2000 and 2003.

The filming had started in September. The latest draft of the script for the crime-thriller drama is written by Jay Basu and Banks, based on the earlier versions by Craig Mazin and Semi Chellas.

Banks and Max Handelman will be producing the movie under their banner Brownstone Productions, along with Doug Belgrad and Elizabeth Cantillon.
