I’m proud of #CharliesAngels and happy it’s in the world.

Despite the disappointing launch of Charlie’s Angels film comes after Banks admitted she was hoping to convince studio bosses to back more female directors.

Elizabeth said

The main thing I want is to convince executives that they can trust women. If I deliver a good movie with this amazing cast, we made something really fun that people really want to see, I just hope I can convince more executives to trust us – just trust women with the job.

She hoped audiences who see the action movie will love it and she will get the chance to continue the franchise with a sequel.

Banks added:

It’s always a good time to have a female-fronted action franchise out there. It’s never a bad time for that. I want people to leave just feeling super hopeful about the sh***y world we’re living in.

The ‘Twilight’ star, Kristen Stewart, 29, said she was all in.

She told Elizabeth that she would do it before the movie was in production. She praised the fact she was able to work with a female director since its rare.

K-Stew said:

I have to say though, it is remarkable. On a smaller movie? Sure. But on a big-budget huge movie that really aspires to be a franchise, not normal. So that fact that she kick-started this and made it happen and everyone trusted her, including the studio, it’s wild. It’s really special.

Charlie’s Angels is the latest in a string of rebooted franchises that have flopped at the box office. It joins Hellboy, Terminator: Dark Fate, Men in Black: International, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
