Kristen Stewart to lead Elizabeth Banks’ ‘Charlie’s Angels’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kristen Stewart is set to star in Elizabeth Banks’ reboot of “Charlie’s Angels.” Sony Pictures Thursday said Stewart’s fellow Angels are to be played by Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.

Banks is directing, producing, co-writing and starring as Bosley in the new incarnation of the Angels saga.

Banks said in a statement that “Charlie’s Angels” is one of the original brands to celebrate the empowered woman. The statement says this film is to introduce a new era of modern and global Angels.

Sony Pictures will release the new “Charlie’s Angels” in North American theaters in September 2019.
