It is a reboot of the hit 2000 film starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu, which was a spin-off of the popular 1970s TV series starring Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith. In the film, Charlie, played by Patrick Stewart, is the boss of a detective agency staffed by glamorous, powerful women (the Angels). The film will be directed by actor Elizabeth Banks, who also stars in the film as Bosley, the Angels’ sidekick. Banks also wrote the screenplay for the new film.
The trailer is an action-packed three minutes of high speed car chases, fight scenes and covetable clothes, with the crime-busting stars appearing in an array of wigs and stylish outfits.
This will be the second film directed by Banks. She made her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015, which set opening weekend box office records for a first-time director.
