REUTERS: The first trailer for the newest “Charlie’s Angels” has debuted. In its third outing, the franchise features a female director and a multi-racial trio of women led by Kristen Stewart. “Twilight” star Stewart, along with rising British actresses Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska, will play the lead roles in the latest movie reboot of the 1970s crime caper, to be directed by Elizabeth Banks.
Banks, who also directed “Pitch Perfect 2,” is also a co-producer and co-writer and she will play the role of the avuncular Bosley, which was played by a man on both the original television series and in two movie versions The new “Charlie’s Angels” marks a trend in Hollywood to entrust more women with directing big-budget fare, and towards ethnic diversity. Scott is of Indian descent, while Balinska is mixed race.
