After wrapping production just this past December, we’ve now got the first solid look at Sony’s upcoming continuation of Charlie’s Angels. Director Elizabeth Banks is at the helm for the new action-packed effort fronted by Kristen Stewart (Personal Shopper), Naomi Scott (Power Rangers), and Ella Balinska (A Modern Tale). Banks will also star alongside the trio as Bosley, a mediator of sorts between the Angels and their employer, Charlie. As if that weren’t enough, Banks also co-wrote the script alongside Jay Basu (The Girl in the Spider’s Web). Their take sees the title trio as part of “a security and intelligence service that has teams around the world,” each led by a different Bosley. (Some of the many Bosleys include Patrick Stewart and Djimon Hounsou, but they don’t appear in this first batch of images.)
In a write-up by EW, Banks talks about the new movie as a continuation of the series rather than a reboot. It’s a story that finds benefactor Charles Townsend richer than ever after more than 40 years running the successful agency:
“If you were rich in 1976, you only got richer. Charles Townsend is richer than ever, so he’s grown the business into a global spy agency.”
We’ve also got our first details as to the cast of characters: “Sabina Wilson (Stewart), the hard-partying, highly skilled wild card; Jane Kano (Balinska), the ex-MI6 muscle of the group; and Elena Houghlin (Scott), the MIT-trained scientist who, Banks says, serves as ‘the heart of the movie.’”
Also starring Noah Centineo, Sam Claflin and Jonathan Tucker, Charlie’s Angels heads into theaters on November 15th.
