American actress Kristen Stewart, who achieved global stardom for starring as Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga film series, which also earned Stewart the BAFTA Rising Star Award, recently spoke out on the movie she absolutely hated making. And no, we’re not talking about The Twilight Saga; we’re actually talking about the bombed Charlie’s Angels remake from 2019.

Kristen Stewart Hated Making Charlie’s Angels

Kristen Stewart recently opened up about her involvement in the 2019 remake of Charlie’s Angels, revealing that she didn’t enjoy the film’s production, though she offered plenty of praise for the original movie, starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu.

Kristen revealed her feelings about the movie while shooting a Know Their Lines video for Variety, saying that the movie was a really good idea at the time but that she ultimately came to dislike the fact that she made such a film.

Charlie’s Angels Cast And Response

The remake in question was directed by and starred Elizabeth Banks, featuring Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Djimon Hounsou, Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, and Patrick Stewart.

Kristen Stewart played Sabrina Wilson, a rebellious heiress who joined the Agency to escape a potential prison sentence. It received mixed responses from the critics, but the audiences loved the movie, and everyone praised the performances of the three lead stars.

Unfortunately, the poor box office performance killed all hopes of a sequel.

Franchise Reboots

Hollywood is all about the money, and getting new projects approved and off the ground is exceptionally difficult, as they’re more likely to bomb at the box office—just look at all the hype surrounding Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon.

That’s why most filmmakers nowadays turn to remaking and rebooting established franchises with added updates that would resonate more with modern audiences.

This essentially means that Kristen Stewart’s Charlie’s Angels isn’t a bad movie on its own; quite the contrary. But it doesn’t really compare to the original.

Elizabeth Banks Had Feelings As Well

Kristen Stewart didn’t really elaborate on why she harbors such strong negative emotions towards the remake of Charlie’s Angels.

However, Elizabeth Banks, the star and director of the film, didn’t have any such reservations.

Banks revealed that she holds fond memories of her co-stars, but she felt that the promotion for the film didn’t really match its vision, as she hoped that the feature would appeal to wider audiences. Instead, the final result is more akin to a release that’s made specifically for the ladies.

No One Returning?

In the unlikely event that 2019’s Charlie’s Angels does receive a sequel of its own, the negative commentary from Kristen Stewart and Elizabeth Banks might imply that the stars won’t be returning to the franchise.

However, there’s still hope for the fans of Charlie’s Angels. The remake did introduce a new generation of agents, and despite the stars expressing their dissatisfaction, the potential sequel could feature the return of the original cast.

Kristen Stewart Ideas

For example, a mission that would get the original agents out of retirement and back on the field.

It could even build further on the Kristen Stewart-featuring remake. It’s a rather interesting and entertaining idea that will eventually come to fruition once the movie makers are left without an original idea once again.
