The stars of cult TV series Charlie's Angels are planning to revive the hit 1970s show.
Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson shot to international stardom in the programme - which was recently transformed into a major movie franchise starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu.
But now the original cast are looking to bring back the show once more - with all three women expressing interest in taking part if they can find a suitable script.
Smith, 62, insists that despite Fawcett's recent battle with cancer, they would all love to star in a remake of the show.
She says, "We'd like to do it if it's right. If we have a script that is today. It would be fun, I think, to bring us back together for the right reason." »
Smith reveals, "We recreate our (hair) styles from the 70s with a modern touch.
"I think having some Angels there was intimidating to some of the stylists. I think it was harder for them than just recreating (the hairstyles) because we were there." »
The original Charlie's Angels have been reunited by Farrah Fawcett's cancer battle.
The 60-year-old actress is currently jetting between her U.S. home and a clinic in Germany where she is being treated for anal cancer.
Jackson beat two bouts of breast cancer in 1987 and 1989 and Jaclyn won her fight with the disease in 2002.
A source tells the tabloid, "Jaclyn and Kate have been there for Farrah throughout her cancer ordeal.
"They're constantly dropping by to check up on her, bringing meals and special treats. And they all talk by phone daily." »
