It was earlier reported that Kristen Stewart along with Power Rangers actor Naomi Scott and English actor Ella Balinska will be portraying the Angels.

Launched in 1976 on ABC, TV series Charlie's Angels continued for five seasons with Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith playing private detectives working for Charlie. Sony Pictures produced a film of the same name, starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu as the angels in 2000. The movie became a huge hit and went on to earn $264 million worldwide. It was followed by a bloated and not well-received sequel, 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Banks has co-written the script with Jay Basu (The Girl in the Spider's Web). She will also produce the project under her Universal-based Brownstone production company.

Stewart was previously seen in Logan alongside Hugh Jackman and was also a part of the X-Men franchise as Professor Charles Xavier. He will soon be reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard on a new Star Trek television series by CBS for its streaming platform, writes THR.
