Columbia Pictures’ “Charlie’s Angels,” directed by Elizabeth Banks, will hit theaters on June 7, 2019. So far, no other movie is dated on that day.
Sony also dated the film adaptation of “The Nightingale,” based on the bestselling World War II novel by Kristin Hannah, which will be directed by Michelle MacLaren. It will hit theaters Oct. 10, 2018.
Banks has been on board to direct “Charlie’s Angels” for Sony since 2015. She will also produce with her husband and producing partner, Max Handelman.
“Charlie’s Angels” will be based on the hit television series from the late 1970s about three female detectives, played by Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, who worked for mysterious benefactor named Charlie.
Fawcett left after the first season and was replaced by Cheryl Ladd. She made several guest appearances in seasons after that, and Tanya Roberts also joined the show later.
In 2000, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu took the film to the big screen, which was directed by McG. Columbia Pictures produced and distributed the film. It was followed by a sequel in 2003, titled “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.”
Banks has also starred in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise and directed the second film, and starred in “Wet Hot American Summer” and “Scrubs.” She will next star in “Pitch Perfect 3,” on which she is also serving as a producer.
She is represented by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
