Kristen Stewart has been tapped to play alongside Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska in the upcoming Charlie’s Angels movie, written by Elizabeth Banks and Jay Basu.
The franchise first came into existence as a television show in the 70s, but some may argue that it truly earned its cult-status after its 2000 film rendition starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu. The story is pretty straightforward: three supremely intelligent and highly-trained women (who happen to also be beautiful) tackle the world’s biggest threats in order to maintain world peace.
Stewart, widely known for her role as Bella in the Twilight Saga, is a seasoned actress who has since opted for challenging dramatic roles—often turning to independent films. This makes the news all the more exciting and we’re looking forward to seeing what the actress brings to the role.
