The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) placed an order for TV pilots and scripts for potential mid-season replacement series including a potential new Charlie’s Angels from Sony TV with writers Al Gough and Miles Millar. This order does not yet mean another Angels movie couldn’t hit theaters anyway. Charlie’s Angels producers Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen told Sci-Fi Wire earlier this year that they were contemplating another theatrical film as well.
Who should don the halos now? And for that matter, who would be right for Charlie? During the time since 2003’s Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, actor John Forsythe passed away. The voice of enigmatic Charles Townsend in the 1976-1981 TV series as well as the two movies, Forsythe created a sense of continuity across different decades, from small screen to large. Although, admittedly, they’d have to cast a fourth Bosley since two of the previous (David Doyle and Bernie Mac) are both gone and Bill Murray just didn’t get along with the cast and crew.
Tell us who should play the characters as a comment here or in reply to the Action Flick Chick on Facebook or @ActionChick on twitter. To add to the fun, Sony Home Entertainment will send a Charlie’s Angels (2000) Blu-ray to one random participant in our discussion. Here are some answers we’ve gotten already:
Nickysurfer22: –it all depends , I thought the cast before was alright.?
mvp_repo1: new Charlies Angels? I find nothing wrong with bringing back Drew, Cameron, and Lucy.
MistiCBR: omg, seriously? Another one?
raschatz: better question is “WHY do another Charlie’s Angels in first place?”
Brash_Angel: Charlies Angels cast – @hdonoho, @juliebenz and @rosemcgowan !!!
TheTurboSloth: Mila Kunis!
faelyspryte: angelina jolie, julie benz, shannon dougherty and Norman Reedus =]
Drea0208: Not Jolie! Ugh! Lol- Lisa Locicero please!
mrjones10: Eva Mendes, Gabrielle Union, Piper Perabo
TheYoungLiar: Depends on if its portraying the Angels just starting out or not. If it’s them in the beginning, i’d go with unknowns. If thats not the case, i can see Scarlett Johannsson as one, seeing as she can do action now that she was in Iron Man 2. and i think Maggie Q would make for a really good Angel. I do have to say that Drew Barrymore was my favorite of the previous.
@beckiejane77: Kristen kreuk, sarah m geller & sophia Bush……charlie’s Angels.
BookWyrm69: Ooh, that chick from Twilight! LOL, jk
roninclique: An adult/dark CA cast: Evangeline Lilly, Ivana Milicevic, Natalie Zea, Judy Greer as Bosley, and Terry O’Quinn as Charlie.
Mr__Rager: Whoopi Goldberg, Kat Stacks and Lindsay Lohan!
Daryl Pollock: Not only is the idea of a new Charlies Angels terrible, it wont make it to a second season, thank god. Can anyone say Bionic Woman?
Jeremy Hyler: everyone played by lucy liu
Charissa Gilmore Duff: Angels: Anna Chlumsky, Alexa Vega and Brenda Song. Bosley: Rosie O’Donnell or Margaret Cho (just to shake it up after Bill Murray and Bernie Mac.)
Arturo R. Garcia: 123 i call bosley!
notmikestark: @actionchick You and two others.
BumpFire2012: New Angels: Karen Gillan, Alice Eve, and Actionchick!
Shadowbat: I say @actionchick , @zenbitch , and @teenygeek !
