Charlie's Angels reboot

Charlie’s Angels may be getting a punk-pop makeover. Elizabeth Banks‘ upcoming reboot of the action-comedy is reportedly eyeing indie favorite Kristen Stewart as well as Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o for the lead roles.

The action series already received a campy modern reboot in the early 2000s with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu donning the wings, but it may be time for some new stars to take on the mantle first originated by Farrah Fawcett and her glorious feathered hair. Hopefully now set to a soundtrack of grungey indie rock or the whistling of a melancholic wind through drapes — whatever Kristen Stewart listens to.

Charlie's Angels reboot

It’s been 14 years since the world witnessed Charlie’s Angels operatives on the big screen in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, but in 2015, Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks nabbed the director’s chair for a film reboot at Sony Pictures. Last year, Banks hired Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Auburn to pen the screenplay, but a new report indicates that Banks – who is also producing – has signed a new duo of writers to take a run at it.

Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, the creators of Netflix’s cartel series Narcos, are on board to rewrite the script, and whispers about a fascinating casting rumor are currently circulating online as well. Learn more about the Charlie’s Angels reboot below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet has signed up to play silent film star Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle in an HBO biopic titled The Day the Laughter Stopped. Arbuckle was one of the most popular, most successful actors of his time, but his career fell apart after he was accused of raping and murdering actress Virginia Rappe. Although he was eventually acquitted, he never completely recovered. He enjoyed only a very brief comeback before he died of a heart attack in 1933 at the age of 46.

Barry Levinson is set to direct the film from a script penned by John Adams screenwriter Kirk Ellis. The project is apparently something of a dream come true for Stonestreet, who’s been looking for a potential Arbuckle project since the late ’90s. [Vulture]

After the jump, the Old Spice guy gets a new gig, ABC picks up a split-personality drama, and USA announces return dates for some of its most popular shows.
