‘Charlie’s Angels’ Trailer: Kristen Stewart Brings Spy Franchise to New Generation
Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for its upcoming fall tentpole “Charlie’s Angels,” and it surely doesn’t disappoint on delivering super-spy action and the franchise’s trademark quips. The action-comedy is the latest directorial effort from Elizabeth Banks, who made her debut behind the camera with “Pitch Perfect 2.” The last time “Charlie’s Angels” graced the big screen was in 2003’s “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu. Banks’ new film casts Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska in the title roles.

The official synopsis from Sony Pictures reads: “Charlie’s Angels have always provided security and investigative skills to private clients, and now the Townsend Agency has expanded internationally with multiple teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys [David Doyle’s John Bosley was the handler for the Angels on the original series that ran from 1976 to 1981] taking

  • HeyUGuys
Patrick Stewart is currently in final talks to Sony Pictures’ rebooted “woke” Charlies Angels.

The X-Men actor is said to be up for one of the many positions of Bosley in the new reiteration. In the film, Charlie Townsend’s detective agency has now become a security and intelligence firm. The name Bosley is to be used as a codeword for the agents set up at the firm within individual branches who deal with the Angels.

Elizabeth Banks will be at the helm of the film in which she also co-wrote. She will also be playing one of the many Bosleys. Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska will be playing the roles of the Angels.

New Charlie's Angels Movie Gets Patrick Stewart as Bosley
The upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot is going to have not one, but two versions of Bosley. The character plays an important role in both the TV and movie versions of the franchise, as he's the man (or woman) who connects the agents to the head of the Townsend Agency that they work for. In this case, the man is going to be played by none other than Patrick Stewart.

According to a new report, Patrick Stewart is in final negotiations to join the cast of the upcoming reboot, which is being directed by Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect 2). Interestingly enough, Banks, aside from directing, is also going to be playing a version of Bosley in the new Charlie's Angels.

  • The Wrap
Sony announced Thursday that Elizabeth Banks will now star in her upcoming remake of “Charlie’s Angels” as Bosley, with Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska joining Kristen Stewart as the titular spy trio.

A New Leaf – Olive Signature

Filtered through her experience as an unequalled comic performer, writer-director Elaine May scores a bulls-eye with this grossly underappreciated gem, fashioned in a style that could be called ‘black comedy lite.’ And that’s the release version mangled by the producer. What might it have been if May had been allowed to finish her director’s cut?

Charlie's Angels Reboot Eyes Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o

Charlie's Angels Reboot Eyes Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o
With Sony finally moving forward with their Charlie's Angels reboot, after languishing in development for a few years, a new report claims that stars Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o are being eyed to play two of the three Angels in this reboot. We reported in May that actress Janelle Monae was at the top of the studio's "wish list" to play one of the Angels, but the actress isn't mentioned in this latest report, so it's possible that she's not in contention for the role anymore. Regardless, with casting starting to heat up, production could begin sooner rather than later.

Variety broke this news today, revealing that the studio is interested in several other "big names" for the reboot, although no specific actors were mentioned. Director Elizabeth Banks came aboard just over two years ago, but our report from May revealed that the script was undergoing a rewrite from Narcos

Janelle Monae to Lead Charlie's Angels Reboot in 2019?

Janelle Monae to Lead Charlie's Angels Reboot in 2019?
Nearly two years after Elizabeth Banks was first sought to direct Sony's Charlie's Angels remake, the project is finally moving forward with new writers. The studio has brought on Narcos creators Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro to rewrite the script, which was first worked on by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast). While no cast members are in place yet, this report claims that Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures, Moonlight) is at the top of the studio's "wish list" for one of the Angels.

The Tracking Board reports that Sony wants at least one of the Angels to be black, and while Janelle Monae is at the top of the studio's list, casting hasn't even started yet since the script isn't finished. This report also claims that Sony will hand out a "prime 2019 release date" very soon for Charlie's Angels, although there is no indication as to what this date may be.

Jackson Returns! Two-Time Oscar Winner and Former Labour MP to Star in Zola Adaptation

Glenda Jackson: Actress and former Labour MP. Two-time Oscar winner and former Labour MP Glenda Jackson returns to acting Two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson set aside her acting career after becoming a Labour Party MP in 1992. Four years ago, Jackson, who represented the Greater London constituency of Hampstead and Highgate, announced that she would stand down the 2015 general election – which, somewhat controversially, was won by right-wing prime minister David Cameron's Conservative party.[1] The silver lining: following a two-decade-plus break, Glenda Jackson is returning to acting. Now, Jackson isn't – for the time being – returning to acting in front of the camera. The 79-year-old is to be featured in the Radio 4 series Emile Zola: Blood, Sex and Money, described on their website as a “mash-up” adaptation of 20 Emile Zola novels collectively known as "Les Rougon-Macquart."[2] Part 1 of the three-part Radio 4 series will be broadcast daily during an

Digital Fury: DVD Essentials for September (Part 2)

Black Sunday: Remastered Edition (1960) Lorber Films Blu-ray and DVD Available Now

One of director Mario Bava’s most acclaimed works, Black Sunday is a strikingly photographed “old dark castle” thriller revolving around witchcraft and possession. Barbara Steele (Piranha) gives a hypnotic performance as Katia, the unfortunate look-alike descendent of a witch who intends to possess her. This highly influential film, also shot by Bava, was the precursor to countless American and European gothic horrors. This is the uncut European print with a few extra minutes of footage, a different English track and Robert Nicolosi’s haunting original score. After years of ugly public domain releases, Black Sunday is finally being presented in its original aspect ratio with a high definition transfer struck from a pristine 35Mm archival print.

• Audio commentary by Tim Lucas (author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark).

• Original Bava theatrical trailers.

Episode Recap: Charlies Angels - 1.08: "They Are Not Saints"

  • PopStar
The title suggests another reference to angels, since they are only angels and not saints, who serve a higher purpose. The angels are out jet skiing and Eve (Minka Kelly) is hailed to save a man who was washed up on the beach. She manages to revive him but he has no recollection of anything. Bosley (Ramon Rodriguez) thinks the man likes Eve, whom they've taken to calling Hugo since he was dressed in a Hugo Boss suit, as they tell Charlie (Victor Garber). Abby (Rachael Taylor) adds she did go mouth to mouth with him, i.e giving him the kiss of life. Funny Abby should get this line seeing as this episode was hyped to contain a kissing scene between Abby and Eve. However, Rachael and Minka did kiss during filming of this episode, most likely as a publicity stunt. There was however, no such scene actually in the episode,
