Many wondered whether Elizabeth Banks had bitten off more than she could chew when she picked Pitch Perfect 2 as her directorial debut. However she did a great job and the film was a big hit. Now she’s plotting her follow up, with THR reporting that she’s in talk to helm and produce a remake of Charlie’s Angels.
It may only be 12 years since the last time the last time the Angels were on the big screen, and four years since a failed TV reboot, but Sony seems to think it’s a good time for another go-around.
The original TV show debuted in 1976, with Jackson, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, and Jaclyn Smith as three women who decide to stop being cops so they can work for the enigmatic Charlie (who they only conversed with via telephone), at his private detective firm, the Townsend Agency.
It’s early days as no writer is attached as yet, but assuming it all pans out, Banks may be directing.
