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.
