Drew Barrymore is ready to make her Charlie’s Angels franchise a trilogy. “I’m so into it,” she tells E! Online’s Marc Malkin. “I’m so into it – Charlie’s Angels III!” Ideas are said to be percolating, including adding a fourth Angel to the Barrymore/Cameron Diaz/Lucy Liu trio, and making the film’s villain male.
Are you into another Charlie’s Angels movie? I don’t really need to see Diaz dance in her underwear again (I realize I could be in the minority), but I could be up for two hours of ass-kicking babe escapism. Also, releasing it in 2010, 10 years after their first film, would give it a sense of purpose. My original thought was to make make the fourth Angel a young twentysomething who needs to be trained – and who could inherit the franchise, should it continue the streak of doing $100 million or more at the domestic box office. (If it doesn’t perform as well, the new Angel could always take it to cable.) But my colleague Annie Barrett has an even better idea: Beyoncé (a.k.a. Sasha Fierce) is the fourth Angel, “just because this seems like the next logical step for her recent penchant for leotards.” (Plus, she’s already been through “Charlie’s Angels Boot Camp.”) Steve Carell is the bad guy – “some sort of similar ‘agent’ role to the one he had in Get Smart, but not AWFUL like Get Smart was – or Bosley.
