Charlie's Angels Reboot Eyes Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o
With Sony finally moving forward with their Charlie's Angels reboot, after languishing in development for a few years, a new report claims that stars Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o are being eyed to play two of the three Angels in this reboot. We reported in May that actress Janelle Monae was at the top of the studio's "wish list" to play one of the Angels, but the actress isn't mentioned in this latest report, so it's possible that she's not in contention for the role anymore. Regardless, with casting starting to heat up, production could begin sooner rather than later.

Variety broke this news today, revealing that the studio is interested in several other "big names" for the reboot, although no specific actors were mentioned. Director Elizabeth Banks came aboard just over two years ago, but our report from May revealed that the script was undergoing a rewrite from Narcos

Janelle Monae to Lead Charlie's Angels Reboot in 2019?
Nearly two years after Elizabeth Banks was first sought to direct Sony's Charlie's Angels remake, the project is finally moving forward with new writers. The studio has brought on Narcos creators Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro to rewrite the script, which was first worked on by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast). While no cast members are in place yet, this report claims that Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures, Moonlight) is at the top of the studio's "wish list" for one of the Angels.

The Tracking Board reports that Sony wants at least one of the Angels to be black, and while Janelle Monae is at the top of the studio's list, casting hasn't even started yet since the script isn't finished. This report also claims that Sony will hand out a "prime 2019 release date" very soon for Charlie's Angels, although there is no indication as to what this date may be.

Justin Theroux Flaunts Seriously Epic Arms in a White Tank Top After Hitting the Gym in L.A.

Justin Theroux Flaunts Seriously Epic Arms in a White Tank Top After Hitting the Gym in L.A.
Justin Theroux is sporting some seriously jacked arms these days.

The handsome star of HBO's The Leftovers was spotted leaving the gym in West Hollywood, California, on Tuesday, showing off his killer biceps in white, retro tank top.

Photos: Hollywood's Sexiest Shirtless Men

Completing the badass look with a pair of black jeans, boots and dark shades, Theroux couldn't have looked cooler. Even his post-workout hair was on point.

While his buff physique is nothing short of impressive, it shouldn't be surprising. Theroux has frequently been shirtless on The Leftovers and showed off just how ripped he can really get in 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

In the flick, he played an Irish gangster (questionably named Seamus O'Grady) who spent years in prison getting fit.

"That Justin Theroux guy - where do I know him from?" Depending on whom you ask, you could get a great many answers. Of course, he's the husband of Jennifer Aniston, but he's had a string of notable acting roles too.

Why the 'Masters of the Universe' reboot may have finally found the perfect director

Why the 'Masters of the Universe' reboot may have finally found the perfect director
Needless to say, Masters of the Universe isn't exactly high art. The long-defunct Mattel franchise -- which began as a toy line first before being spun off into a popular Saturday morning cartoon series in the 1980s -- was a silly diversion for the under-10 set that was perfectly suited to being served up with heavy doses of sugary breakfast cereal. And yet so was Transformers, which didn't keep it from being turned into a multi-billion-dollar live-action film franchise that cut across demographic barriers. Still, it hasn't been quite so easy for He-Man -- Masters' blond-locked, impossibly-muscled central hero -- on the big screen. The first effort at a live-action film, 1987's Masters of the Universe, was beset by numerous production problems, a lead actor who could barely deliver dialogue, and ridiculous contractual stipulations from Mattel that inadvertently led to charges of Star Wars copycatism. While it certainly had its charms,

Charlie's Angels: McG on the movie reboot

The director of the first two Charlie's Angels movies, McG, shares his thoughts on the planned reboot.

One of the many properties being lined up for the Hollywood reboot treatment is Charlie's Angels. It's been over a decade since the lukewarm reception and commercial performance of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, the second movie, which seemed to have nullified any chance of a third.

Well, until the reboot came along.

Elizabeth Banks has signed up to direct the new Charlie's Angels, and the director of the last two films, McG, has been nattering about it to Collider.

So: how does it feel for people to be talking about rebooting his old movies?

"That’s just life", he said. "I always identify as a young person, but I’ve been around a little bit now. I’m not longer the youngest guy doing it. It’s interesting".

Jaclyn Smith Turns a Stunning 70: See the Charlie's Angels Beauty and 29 More Stars Still Sexy in Their 60s, 70s & Beyond
Once a sex symbol, always a sex symbol. Certainly in Jaclyn Smith's case, at least. The original Charlie's Angels star is celebrating her 70th birthday today and whatever it is she's doing... It's working. Smith, who covered many a bedroom wall alongside fellow poster girls Farrah Fawcett and Kate Jackson in the 1970s, is still pretty pinup-worthy as far as we're concerned. After Charlie's Angels wrapped its six-year run in 1981, Smith became a fixture on the small screen in TV movies—she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her title role in Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy—and she had a cameo in 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. She also famously turned into a...

13 amazing things you probably didn't know about Star Wars' Carrie Fisher

13 amazing things you probably didn't know about Star Wars' Carrie Fisher
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away - Ok, on Tuesday, on your laptop - the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer revealed a host of new titbits to intrigue and torment us. As well as, among the new and familiar faces, our first proper look at Carrie Fisher returning as Princess Leia.

And yet Fisher isn't all doughnut-hairdos and gold bikinis. After the original trilogy was released, she became as well known for her incredible life off-screen - not least for her turbulent love life and struggles with bi-polar disorder and substance abuse - as her roles on-screen.

So as she turns 59 this week, what better time to look back at some of the stranger things you probably didn't know about her:

'Tower of Terror' Movie Reboot Planned at Disney
With Disney already developing a movie adaptation based on their theme park attraction Jungle Cruise, the studio is also moving forward with another theme park-based movie, Tower of Terror. Deadline reports that the studio is currently seeking screenwriters, who will write the script based on a treatment by John August. Both John August and producer Jim Whitaker took their idea to Disney, and the studio sparked to their take.

The attraction opened at DisneyWorld's Hollywood Studios in 1994, which is based on the anthology series The Twilight Zone. The attraction is set at the fictional Hollywood Tower Hotel, where visitors step inside an elevator, where they're told stories about several people who have disappeared in that very same elevator over the years. The movie adaptation will follow a group of five people, who enter an elevator in a posh hotel. They all disappear after the hotel is struck by lightning. The

Charlie's Angels getting a movie reboot

  • Den of Geek
Sony set to hire Elizabeth Banks to bring Charlie's Angels back to the big screen.

Things went really rather well for Elizabeth Banks with her feature directorial debut this summer. She helmed Pitch Perfect 2, which proved to be a good hit in the Us especially, and in turn is leading to Pitch Perfect 3 (which is due in 2017).

Yet Banks may not be returning to direct that one (although she's a producer on the series too, as well as her work in front of the camera, so she'll still be involved), as instead, she may be heading over to Sony to direct the big screen reboot of Charlie's Angels.

Based on the hit 1970s TV series that originally starred Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, Charlie's Angels first headed to the big screen in 2000. Then, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu took on the three lead roles for director McG,

'Charlie's Angels' Movie Reboot Wants Director Elizabeth Banks

'Charlie's Angels' Movie Reboot Wants Director Elizabeth Banks
We reached the tipping point with remakes and reboots years ago, so it should come as no surprise that, as we hit the midway point of this decade, a lot of reboots are once again getting rebooted. Sony is doing it a second time with Spider-Man, and now they are planning to do it with Charlie's Angels. Elizabeth Banks is in talks to direct the action-adventure comedy. She will also co-producer with her husband Max Handelman.

At this time, Sony is still searching for a writer to handle the story behind this all-new Charlie's Angels. Elizabeth Banks made her directorial debut this summer, with the blockbuster hit Pitch Perfect 2. The musical comedy, which saw Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Elizabeth Banks reprising their original roles from the 2012 hit Pitch Perfect, has gone onto earn more than $183.7 million at the domestic box office. It is the number 8 highest grossing movie of 2015 in the states.

Christian Bale Won't Work With Terminator Salvation Director Again

  It doesn't bode well for a film when the most memorable things about Terminator Salvation are Christian Bale's epic meltdown on the set and a computer-generated version of a young Arnold Schwarzenegger as a T-800. The fourth installment in the Terminator film series performed the worst at the box office. It only grossed $125M, which is $25M less than 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Some have blamed its poor performance on its PG-13 rating as all of the previous Terminator films have been rated R.  Though, that seems like a flimsy excuse. Bale wasn't impressed with McG's filmography at that time, which included Charlie's Angels (2000), Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003) and We Are Marshall (2006). Despite his apprehension he decided to give McG a shot, and signed on for Terminator Salvation, but in this new interview with the Wall Street Journal he says he won't make that mistake again.

Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

  • Den of Geek
Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain,

"My life changed a lot," he says, regarding his a relationship with Aniston and all the media attention. "More people are like, ‘Hey, man!’ And I don’t think that’s from my role in John Adams. But it only changed as much as I engaged with it, and I learned very quickly: Don’t ever engage with it. Just Jkl. It was a learning curve, but it wasn’t as traumatic as you might expect.
