Which Classic TV Show Is Heading Back To The Big Screen..? Again?by

Classic US TV has always made for a movie reboot or two – and while many of them may not be great, it’s no longer expected that a revival, re-imagining or remake of old intellectual property is necessarily going to fail in terms of box office numbers or critical reception. For every 21 Jump Street, there is a CHiPS – and with a re-imagining of the Baywatch franchise hitting screens worldwide, it’s clear that the rebooting wheel is far from done turning. Some franchises – bizarrely – even come back more than once, and there is one such franchise that is rearing its head again despite having had a lukewarm run at the box office last decade.

Charlie’s Angels – under the gaze of actor-director Elizabeth Banks – has apparently claimed itself a nice summer blockbuster slot in the release schedules during 2019, according to Sony Pictures. The Charlie’s Angels franchise was obviously at its biggest in the 70s and 80s, but it was retooled for a cinematic outing firstly in 2000, before being followed up by a sequel – Full Throttle – a few years later. While Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz made up the trio for the original reboot, it is not yet clear who will be filling out the ranks for the 2019 version. Will it really be almost 20 years since the franchise was first rebooted? It’s perhaps a little hard to believe!

Charlie’s Angels 2019 was not the only movie that Sony announced in production this week, with an unnamed animated movie earmarked for 2020 and with Angry Birds 2 announced official for September 20th 2019 – in response to the huge financial success of last year’s phone game adaptation which, too, received lukewarm critical praise. One News Page gave the movie 4 stars out of 5, naming it one of the year’s best animated efforts.

How will Charlie’s Angels fare for a modern audience? With so many existing TV and film properties being retooled for modern tastes, we may expect the old formula to be shaken up a bit – but how? Sit tight for now – it’s likely many more TV reboots and remakes could make their way to the big screen in the next few years, and we are certain that there will be more details coming through about Charlie’s Angels in the near future. Will it beat the critical reception the original reboot received? We’ll have to wait and see.
