Naomi Scott is reportedly signing on to the Charlie’s Angels reboot, which is set to begin production this September in Berlin.
Naomi Scott was seen as the pink Power Ranger in last year’s big screen adaptation of the Saban franchise. She can now be seen in Disney’s live-action Aladdin movie next. Read on…
Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks is helming the reboot The Charlie’s Angels reboot, which is set for release in the summer of 2019.
That Hashtag Show has this report about Naomi Scott joining Charlie’s Angels Reboot:
Naomi Scott is set to star in the Charlie’s Angels reboot alongside Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o. The reports also states that Nyong’o is still in talks at this point and has not yet officially signed on. As previously noted, production is expected to begin in September, after getting pushed back from April, and it will go through January 2019 with an eye on a June 7th, 2019 release date. Director Elizabeth Banks is also starring in the film as Bos.
Another key casting will be the voice of Charlie for the reboot. It was John Forsythe voice in the TV series from 1976 to 1981 and then he reprised his role for the early 2000s film adaptations that starred Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu.
The actress/director, Banks is excited to try and “do right” by the franchise. She wants the reboot to say something and for it to mean a lot to viewers when they see it, which will be a stark contrast to the tongue-in-cheek versions from the early 2000s.
We hope she puts her all into it, and the movie is great, because the Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu movies are classics.
