Women’s World Cup star, Golden Boot winner, Olympian and 2019 Best FIFA Women’s Player Megan Rapinoe can now add “Bosley” to her long list of monikers.
The LGBTQ activist fires up a group of young female soccer players in a new promo for Elizabeth Banks’ “Charlie’s Angels” reboot, with Rapinoe swapping her number 15 jersey for a one with an Angels logo.
Echoing the sentiment from the upcoming Sony movie, Rapinoe tells her new recruits: “It’s time to earn your wings. We’re stronger together … remember, your teammates are your sisters.”
The spot, directed by Blake Benham, was produced by ACE Media, the NFL Player Association’s content arm that identifies and develops new opportunities for all athletes. The video opens with Rapinoe in a power suit, unrecognizable except for her pink hair. The voice of the mysterious Charlie sends her off on the mission, where emerging stars on the girls’ soccer team from Lonestar Soccer Club of Austin, Texas, meet their idol.
Meanwhile, the latest generation of big-screen Angels is made up of Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.
Banks directs the 2019 iteration of the iconic ’70s television crime drama, making her the first woman to tell the empowering female-driven story. She also wrote the screenplay, from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn, and plays the role of Bosley. Djimon Hounsou and Patrick Stewart round out the cast as the other two Bosley characters.
“Charlie’s Angels” hits theaters on Nov. 15.
