Attention all Charlie’s Angels fans!

The upcoming flick will reportedly be based on the 1970s television series of the same name — which ran from 1976 until 1981 — starring Kate Jackson, 66, Jaclyn Smith, 69, and the late Farrah Fawcett.
The franchise has already been rebooted once for a 2000 film — which made a whopping $264 million worldwide — starring Cameron Diaz, 43, Lucy Liu, 46, and Drew Barrymore, 40. A sequel, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, premiered in 2003.

Both the show and the movies followed three women who secretly worked for a private detective agency in LA. A revival of the story was also brought back to TV in 2011, but the show was canceled soon after it’s premiere.
Though Elizabeth, 41, is known for starring in movies including Wet Hot American Summer, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Definitely, Maybe, Pitch Perfect and The Hunger Games franchise, the actress made her directorial debut with 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2. She will reportedly tackle the Charlie’s Angles reboot alongside her husband, producer Max Handelman.
