The latest installment of the Charlie’s Angels series, which hits screens today, has been directed by a woman, Elizabeth Banks.
While the earlier two films were directed by McG, this one has been directed by the actress-director.
Elizabeth Banks also does not stop with directing the film. She has also produced the film along with Doug Belgrad, Elizabeth Cantillon and Max Handelman.
The film stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Elizabeth Banks, Djimon Hounsou, Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, and Patrick Stewart.
This version has Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska working for the mysterious Charles Townsend, whose security and investigative agency has expanded internationally. Therefore, the world’s “smartest, bravest, and most highly trained” women all over the globe, are now teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys taking on tough jobs everywhere.
Will Elizabeth Banks’s film manage to keep this franchise interesting and popular or will it kill the franchise itself? Only time will tell.
