The studio and producers will begin a search for a writer to tackle the reboot.[1]

In April 2016, Banks signed up to direct a revival of the classic Charlie's Angels TV series.[2][3] Banks commented that, "Charlie’s Angels, for me, is one of the original brands to celebrate the empowered woman since its debut in the 70s,” Banks said. “This film honors the legacy of Charles Townsend and his agency while introducing a new era of modern and global Angels. I couldn’t be more excited to work with Kristen, Naomi and Ella to bring this chapter to fans around the world."[4] are planning a reboot of the 'Charlie's Angels film franchise' with the potential of American actress, director, and producer Elizabeth Banks both producing with her producing partner and husband Max Handelman and the studio are in negotiations with her to direct the film.[5]

Variety confirmed that the three new lead 'Angels' are Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska. Banks will portray the role of Bosley. Kristen Stewart commented about the new reboot project that, "You take a story that’s usually kind of, for lack of a better word, not silly, but just kind of funny, campy. The movie should still be fun but, like, if you ground it and make it about women that really know how to help each other, it’ll be perfect to release now. Like, we’re all together and strong."[6] The most recent draft of the script is written by Jay Basu and Banks, based on earlier drafts by Craig Mazin and Semi Chellas.[7]
