Charlie's Angels, a popular television show from the '70s and '80s starring Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, was famously brought to the silver screen in the early 2000s.
The new reboot starred Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as the three detectives and Bill Murray, then Bernie Mac as Bosley. Well, the trio of badass crime-fighting chicks, Bosley, and Charlie are all coming back thanks to Sony and (potentially) Elizabeth Banks.
According to The Hollywood Reporter who first broke the news, Sony is looking to hire Banks to direct the film. While this reboot might not be a necessary one - or one that anyone was really asking to see - given her knack for directing funny, female-empowering movies with Pitch Perfect 2, I'd say this could be a good match.
Although I have absolutely zero say into what this movie would look like, I do have a few ideas for who could be cast! So, here's my take at fan casting the Charlie's Angels reboot:
Given their work together for the Pitch Perfect movies, I think it'd be a great call to have her as the leader of the group. Not only is she one of the funniest and most talented young actresses around, but we also know she has no problem with acting as the leader of a group of strong women.
With her roles in movies like Cloverfield, That Awkward Moment, and Gotham we know that the gorgeous Jessica Lucas can handle both action and comedy. It feels as if she is right on the brink of really making it big, maybe working alongside Elizabeth Banks will give her just the boost she needs!
Alright, maybe I'm just a huge fan of Brie Larson, but who isn't? I could definitely see her playing the brains of the operation. Larson's acting range is incredibly diverse, but I think she has a real knack for comedy.
Adam Devine as Bosley
This one was actually suggested to me by a coworker, and now I can't seem to get it out of my head. Not only has Devine worked with Banks on the Pitch Perfect movies, but I think he'd stand out well in a group of strong women.
Of course, these are just a few of my ideas. Now it's your turn! Who would you like to see in the new Charlie's Angels movie? Let me know in the comments section!
