So far, the only others details being made public are that Elizabeth will produce the movie along with her husband, while The Lake House director David Auburn will write the script. It will hit theaters October 10, 2018.

Charlie's Angels has always been a franchise built on the foundation of strong women taking care of business, but it has always been done under the lead of a man in the director's chair.

It's now been confirmed by Variety that Elizabeth Banks has been lined up to direct a new reboot of Charlie's Angels and Narcos screenwriters Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard to help crack the story. The studio has also dated "The Nightingale" for August 10, 2018, and an untitled Sony Animation film for July 24, 2020, Variety said.

Fawcett left the series and was replaced by Cheryl Ladd, 65, and then Shelley Hack, 69, and Tanya Roberts, 61, joined the show later in the series. Columbia Pictures produced and distributed the film. She will next star in "Pitch Perfect 3", on which she is also serving as a producer.

The 2019 reincarnation of the angels are yet to be announced, but whoever it is has some huuuuge bloody shoes to fill (Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith circa 1976, and Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu circa 2000). It was followed by a 2003 sequel entitled 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 is represented by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
