Elizabeth Banks' 'Charlie's Angels' Reboot Gets Summer 2019 Release Date

The Charlie's Angels reboot takes inspiration from the 2000 American action-comedy film of the same name, which is actually an adaptation of the ABC crime drama television series that aired from 1976 to 1981.

And with Elizabeth Banks in the director's chair for a new Charlie's Angels movie, perhaps things will be a little less frenetic this time around.

Deadline reports that Banks' Charlie's Angels reboot has landed a prime summer release date.

The 2003 sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, brought in $259 million (£199 million) at the box office.

Banks will also be producing the reboot via her Universal-based Brownstone Productions with her husband and producing partner, Max Handelman.

The original movie starred Cameron Diaz as Natalie Cook, Drew Barrymore as Dylan Sanders, as the "Angelic" private investigators working under the mysterious millionaire, Charles "Charlie" Townsend.

Casting details have not yet been released, however, Hidden Figures star Janelle Monae is apparently being targeted for a central role.

The film will be directed by Elizabeth Banks, whose last venture Pitch Perfect 2, released in 2015, raked moolah at the box-office and made folks from Sony Pictures take notice of her directorial skills.

Also, Sony will release an untitled animated franchise flick from its own animation group on July 24, 2020.

Directed by "Breaking Bad" helmer Michelle MacLaren, "The Nightingale" tells the story of two sisters coming of age in France on the eve of World War II, and their struggle to survive and resist the German occupation of France.
