Naomi Scott, who is starring as Jasmine in Disney’s upcoming Aladdin remake, and British newcomer Ella Balinska are set to join Kristen Stewart in the studio’s new Charlie’s Angels reboot.
Elizabeth Banks, who is directing the project, will also take a role in front of the camera: she will play Bosley, the face of the enigmatic and never-seen owner of the detective agency, Charlie Townsend.
The new story takes the detective agency premise of the original television series and turn-of-the century movies and takes it global, with the Townsend Agency now a worldwide security and intelligence service that has teams around the planet. The movie will focus on one of those teams and the next generation of Angels.
“Charlie’s Angels, for me, is one of the original brands to celebrate the empowered woman since its debut in the ’70s,” said Banks in a statement. “This film honors the legacy of Charles Townsend and his agency while introducing a new era of modern and global Angels. I couldn’t be more excited to work with Kristen, Naomi and Ella to bring this chapter to fans around the world.”
