'Charlie's Angels': Do we want another movie? (If Beyonce's the fourth Angel!)

Charliesangels_lDrew 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: BeyoncĂ© (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.

Second our casting suggestions, or pitch your own below.

    The first one was crap, I can’t believe anyone paid to see it. The second one was megacrap, I can’t believe they made it. A third one? Why why why?

  • Wayne Coyne is Jesus

    I saw Get Smart over the weekend….I actually thought it was lots of fun.

  • Please Don’t Do It

    Beyonce can’t act

  • dennis

    only if they really got a good story on hand. then, balance it with a some great action. no beyonce please, maybe they could get megan fox.

  • allie

    A third Charlie’s Angels movie… heck yeah!!!! Beyonce? Heck NO!!!! I like the idea of finding someone younger to take over the franchise. Maybe someone a little unexpected, like Blake Lively. She’s got the “babe” look and there is definitely the potential for attitude and a** kicking!! Or one of the Twilight girls (not Kristen). Nikki Reed totally has the chops to be an angel!

  • angel

    Yes, oh heavenly Yes, bring on CA’s Part III!
    They need to have the original 6 angels (kate, farrah, jaclyn, shelly hack…love her, cheryl ladd, and tonya roberts) for possible cameos! They shouldn’t limit these cameos to the ‘orginal 3′, but the replacements too!
    When is Sony going to release the TV show of Season 4 and 5 on DVD? Hopefully soon!

  • Seanti

    Why not combine both, and have Beyonce be the new Bosley, Bernie Mac’s character’s daughter? She could still find some time to kick some butt…

  • David

    I loved the second movie!
    It was wayyyy better then the first!!
    I would love see a third movie!!
    I love the chemistry from all three angels
    I’m not liking the idea of a fourth angel
    Beyonce as the 4th angel??
    I hope not, she needs to stick to music
    She’s not bad a actress
    but I don’t wanna see her in this

  • Sara

    As much as I’d love to see more movies with female action stars…I vote no on Charlie’s Angels. The first two were pretty dumb – it’s like, they’re ditzy and hot, but they’re action stars so it’s actually empowering! Not to mention how ridiculous everything was. And it’s creepy that they get orders from an unseen overlord.

    I am SO ready for the camp-tasticness! I know I’m probs in the minority, but I own both delicious films on DVD, and was positively heart-broken when plans for the third were indefinitely suspended. I guess I’m one of the few that really identified with the need to avoid an oncoming missile by driving off a dam, landing in a jet, and willing oneself to the wing of said jet to fly to safety. It really speaks to my life.

  • Dennis N.

    I wish I wrote my comment
    In broken lines
    All stanza-like
    Like David did.

  • AmyK

    No Beyonce!

  • KJC

    No fourth angel!! if they want to continue the franchise/pass the torch, make the 4th one about that, don’t mess w/ the barrymore/diaz/liu trio, the 3 of them work great together, say what you want about the films, but they are a lot of fun!

  • gogo

    The first one was cute but the second was absolutely horrid. Hell no to Beyonce since she can’t act. If you’re casting a pop star go for Rihanna, she’s way fiercer. Also Megan Fox would be an amazing addition.

  • Ep Sato

    I second the thought of Megan Fox either as the fourth angel (to pass things onto) or as the villian. She’s got a naughty enough streak to pull it off.
    The first two were passable, IMHO, but they had funny moments and made $$$, so it’s off to the trilogy!
