'Charlie's Angels 3' Slow-Motion Flip-Kicking Our Way

Ready for more gyrating in boy shorts and casual disregard of physics? Let's hope so, because producer Nancy Juvonen told Sci Fi Wire she's thinking about making another Charlie Angel:

SFW: Are you seriously looking at a third Charlie's?

Juvonen: Seriously, I've been in total denial for years. I've been like, "Don't talk to me. Do not even mention it." Then I started, about a year and a half ago, going, "All right, what if I started to think about this again?" Then, about eight months ago, I started actually pitching in my head sort of what I'd do, but we don't want to go back in without story. I want [one] from start to finish, all the way to the third-act ending, a great document. There, we'll go nuts.

SFW: Is the idea the same three Angels, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu—not to start over with a new trio?

Juvonen: I think that's part of it. I'm really into that when the show had the four Angels on for a while, and Farrah [Fawcett]'s little sister, Cheryl Ladd, came in. There was something fun with that, I think, that's very iconic of the show. So I'm a little on that.

SFW: So actresses should start pitching themselves for the fourth Angel?

Juvonen: They should. I'm having a Rihanna fixation myself. What are you going to do?

SFW: Would you get McG again? [He's currently finishing up Terminator Salvation, wants to do Captain Nemo next and may be on the hook for more Terminator films if his first one hits.]

Juvonen: We'd have to do it with McG. I don't think we could do it without McG, and I think that the Angels all at least need to be there.

Yes, don't go back in without a story. Emphasis on story is always what made the Charlie Angel movies landmark cinema. Otherwise it's just some attractive and popular actresses bouncing between ridiculous action and campy eroticism that I have a hard justifying liking an inordinate amount.

My requests for the possible third chapter: a fourth Angel in a wheelchair (but she does all these awesome moves in the wheelchair), Zach Galifianakis as Bosley #3, time travel. And those aren't jokes--that's genuinely what I want to see.
