Kristen Stewart Says The New CHARLIE'S ANGELS Film is "Grounded and Well Intentioned"
last month we learned that Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott (Aladdin, Power Rangers) and Ella Balinska (Midsomer Murders) will star in director Elizabeth Banks's upcoming reboot of Charlie's Angels.
This new film seems like it will be taking a different approach than the previous renditions, and while talking to ET about the film, she explained that it's going to be "grounded and well-intentioned".
Stewart has already started training for the film and when addressing Lucy Liu’s recent remarks that the new film would be a "positive result for women", Stewart said:
"Oh, that is really cool that she said that. It is true I think, it is not maybe everyone’s immediate response that it would be, like, something we would have to see again because the one I grew up with was so much fun, and you know, the re-imagining is so grounded and well intentioned and really shows the way women can work together now. It tries to be warm and funny, but it lacks a kitch element that we have seen before that works so well."
Stewart then went on to explain that the new film would take a different direction than the films that McG made with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu:
“We are not trying to do an impression of the last one, so yeah, I think Liz is like so genuinely naturally funny all the time anyway."
I'm curious to see what Elizabeth Banks is planning for this, especially with Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard writing the script. They are the writers and producers of the fantastic Netflix series Narcos. That's the main selling point for me.
Sony announced that the new Charlie’s Angels film will open in theaters on September 27, 2019. What are your thoughts on the upcoming Charlie's Angels movie?
