Elizabeth is currently in negotiations with Sony Pictures to direct a new 'Charlie's Angels' movie.

Charlie’s Angels will be once again seen on the big screen with Elizabeth Banks as the director. Sony will be rebooting the franchise. Currently Sony and Elizabeth are in negotiations, according to THR.

Sony reportedly wants Banks to direct the movie. Banks will also be seen producing with her husband and producing partner Max Handelman. The studio is still in search for a writer to handle the reboot. 

Angels was a hit television series in the 1970s. The show centered around three women detectives who worked to solve cases for a mysterious benefactor named Charlie. The three detectives were played by Farah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson.

Finally in 2000, the series was turned into an action comedy hit by McG. Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz starred as the three detectives. Then in 2003 the film was followed by a bloated and not well-received sequel ‘Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle’. Due to this sequel the movie franchise was killed. 

Another attempt was made to revive it as a television series in 2011. This series only lasted four episodes as it too wasn’t well-received. Now Banks has shown her talents as a comedian and also shown affinity for female empowerment projects. We saw her as the steward of the Pitch Perfect franchise. 

Banks had made her directorial debut with Pitch 2 which was a massive summer hit for Universal. The movie opened to about $70 million domestic. This gave her the second largest opening for a female director.
