Patrick Stewart is in final negotiations to portray one of several Bosleys in the upcoming “Charlie’s Angels” reboot at Sony Pictures.
In the new version of the classic story, Charlie Townsend’s detective agency is now a security and intelligence film with branches all around the world. Bosley will be the codename given to Townsend’s liaisons who manage the individual branches and interacts with the titular Angels.
Elizabeth Banks, who co-wrote and directs the film, is also playing a Bosley in the movie which will focus on just one of those teams of angels – Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.
Stewart has described the film as ‘super-woke’ and features ‘no objectification’ along with not trying to be a remake of the series or earlier films. She tells Indiewire: “I’ve never done such a fun movie. [It] was a lot of flouncing around joking, women supporting each other, not just kicking ass and being kitschy. It was so well-intentioned and warm and strong.”
The new “Charlie’s Angels” opens September 27th 2019.
