Kristen Stewart: New Charlie’s Angels isn’t ‘an impression’ of previous movies

Kristen Stewart dropped some interesting tidbits regarding Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels reboot while speaking with ET about her new film Lizzie.

The actress, who has already begin training for the part, first addressed Lucy Liu’s recent remarks that the new film would be a “positive result for women.”

“Oh, that is really cool that she said that,” Stewart said. “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 also explained the new film would take a different direction than any of its predecessors — including McG’s original 2000 feature, starring the aforementioned Liu alongside Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore.

“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,” Stewart said.

 

Sony previously announced that the new Charlie’s Angels film open in theaters on June 7, 2019, but the studio has now announced the film’s release date will September 27, 2019. Writing credits also include Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (writers and producers for the Netflix series Narcos).

The franchise began with a TV show that ran from 1976-1981 starring Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd. There were two films, Charlie’s Angels in 2000 and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle in 2003, starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. The sequel added Demi Moore.

In 2011, ABC premiered a new Charlie’s Angels series from Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, starring Annie Ilonzeh, Minka Kelly and Rachael Taylor, though it only lasted for four episodes before being pulled from the lineup.

The Charlie’s Angels reboot will be produced by Banks and Max Handelman via their Brownstone production company along with Elizabeth Cantillon and Doug Belgrad who is co-financing through his 2.0 Entertainment banner. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the film for Sony.
