When the movie version of the TV series Charlie’s Angels hit theaters, it immediately became a hit. Coupled with the follow-up Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, the movies grossed over $520 million combined. Although we were deprived of a third film, our hunger for more was satiated by NBC’s reboot of the TV series. But that didn’t go as planned, and was cancelled after 8 episodes. Is that going to stop Hollywood from resurrecting the idea for more movies? Nope! Per THR:
Director Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels reboot has landed a prime summer release date.
The movie will hit theaters on June 7, 2019, Sony said Tuesday.
Charlie’s Angels has yet to reveal its cast.
Sony also announced that The Nightingale, directed by Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones), will open on Aug. 10, 2018. The drama is based on the best-selling novel by Kristin Hannah about two sisters coming of age in German-occupied France on the eve of World War II.
The studio also planted a flag on July 24, 2020, for an untitled animated film.
Surprisingly, I’m all for this. I sort of envision the movies as Bond-like: with a rotating cast of lead actors, you could continue this franchise for decades. This could turn out to be very good.
