The first Charlie’s Angels movie was a fun ride, however Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, while still fun, was rather stupid. They had Demi Moore flying around, annoying pre-Transformers Shia LaBeouf and too many silly CGI scenes that made things laughable. However, despite the weaker second film the Charlie’s Angels franchise made $523 million worldwide, which shows that people liked it and could possibly want more.
Recently Drew Barrymore told E! Online that she’s ready to play Dylan Sanders again in a third installment of the franchise:
“I’m so into it,” Barrymore said while promoting her new star-filled romantic comedy, He’s Just Not That Into You. “I’m so into it—Charlie’s Angels III!”
“It’s percolating up,” said Nancy Juvonen, Barrymore’s Flower Films producing partner. “It’s rising to the surface.”
Barrymore added, “They’re hard movies to make, but they’re fun.”
Ideas are being kicked around, including the possible introduction of a fourth Angel.
Let’s not forget about a villain. Sam Rockwell and Crispin Glover were among the baddies the first time around. Demi Moore appeared in Full Throttle as Madison Lee, a former Angel turned vamped-up villainess. For the next flick, they say they’ll probably go with another guy.
If memory serves me right Drew Barrymoore owns the rights to Charlie’s Angels and made quite a lot of $$$ from the films, so a third one will be another big payday for her.
