Kristen Stewart Finally Gets Action Movie: Will She Play Lesbian in ‘Charlie’s Angels?’

Kristen Stewart has long wanted to get a action movie she could call her own, but Charlie’s Angels? She’s set to star in a reboot of the television series, but the show’s whole concept is somewhat antithetical to her “feminist” lesbianism. The original television series, which ran from 1976 to 1981, was based on the concept that three drop-dead gorgeous women could also be detectives working for a mysterious man, who never appeared on camera. The show starred pin-up Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson. Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack and Tanya Roberts also appeared on the show.

One Tree Hill: Here's Why the Cast is Reuniting

One Tree Hill is not returning.

But the cast is reuniting for a Lifetime movie this Christmas. That's about the closest thing we have to a silver lining after being teased by the cast earlier this week.

Lifetime announced Wednesday that Hilarie Burton, Robert Buckley, Danneel Ackles, and Antwon Tanner were all reuniting for The Christmas Contract.

The TV movie follows Jolie (Burton) as she makes her way home to Louisiana for the first time since she parted ways with Foster.

As fate would have it, Foster is also on his way back to town with a brand new girlfriend, and Jolie's friend, Naomi (Ackles) tells her she should bring back Naomi's brother.

In true soap fashion, Naomi creates a contract so that Jack can be a faux boyfriend to try and turn the tide in Jolie's favor. But Jack is

Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o circling Charlie’s Angels reboot

It’s been months since the last update on Elizabeth Banks’ silver screen reboot of Charlie’s Angels, but today Variety has broken the silence and revealed the first bit of potential casting information. According to the outlet, Sony is eyeing Twilight star Kristen Stewart to play a member of the titular crime-fighting private detective trio.

The studio is also interested in a number of other names, including Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, whose involvement with the project sounds slightly less concrete than Stewart’s at the time.

Charlie’s Angels began as a series, which ran on ABC for five seasons from 1976 to 1981 and originally starred Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith and Farrah Fawcett (Fawcett and Jackson eventually left the cast and were replaced by Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack and Tanya Roberts). Since then, the show has been rebooted a few times, most famously in the early 2000s in the

Wait, Was That Taylor Swift in Selena Gomez's "Bad Liar" Music Video?

  • BuzzSugar
After Selena Gomez's "Bad Liar" music video dropped on Wednesday, eagle-eyed fans thought they might have spotted Taylor Swift. People took to Twitter to share screenshots from the bedroom scene toward the end of the video, zeroing in on the posters on the wall. One appears to be a Charlie's Angels poster, with the center figure looking a bit like Swift, but to be fair, both Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Ladd from the TV series have Taylor-esque vibes. Meanwhile, another poster in the video features a blond woman rocking white sunglasses reminiscent of Swift's 1989 tour look. Coincidence? Most likely, but you have to hand it to the fans for always being on the lookout! Did anyone else notice the Taylor Swift poster in the background of the Bad Liar music video? - ljp2010 (@directmixswift7) June 15, 2017 Is my brain just playing games or is that Taylor Swift pic.twitter.com

‘Unforgettable’ Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Release Date and Details

Denise Di Novi's Unforgettable starring  Katherine Heigl, Rosario Dawson, Geoff StultsCheryl Ladd, Sarah Burns, Whitney Cummings, Simon Kassianides, Isabella Kai Rice and Robert Ray Wisdom is headed to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital in July.

The Unforgettable Digital HD version will arrive first on July 18th. You won't have to watch much longer for the Unforgettable Blu-ray and DVD combo packs as they are scheduled for release a week later on July 25th.

Unforgettable had a tough time at the box office earning just over $15 million. A lower $12 million production budget helped, and home video should find a much larger audience.

Exclusive: Elizabeth Banks Talks 'Charlie's Angels' Reboot and Reveals If She'll Play an Angel
Charlie's Angels is heading to the big screen -- again!

Elizabeth Banks will take on directing duties for the upcoming adaptation, which is scheduled to hit theaters in summer 2019, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Though the lucky ladies who will be playing the Angels have yet to be revealed, there's one person who likely won't be slipping into those shoes.

Et sat down with the 43-year-old actress-director in March, while she was promoting Power Rangers, where she revealed that she wasn't open to the idea of casting herself as one of Charlie's Angels.

"Not as an Angel. No," she told Et's Cameron Mathison matter-of-factly.

When asked why she wasn't keen on doing so, Banks said the role's physical demands would be too much.

"Too much [mimes a punch] and [mimes another punch] and I have to train and like, ugh!" Banks said. "I can't. I'm so tired!"

Unforgettable (2017) – Review

Time for another cinematic trek to the land of “second chance” romance, where those wounded lovers get another try at happiness in a picture-perfect little town complete with a cozy home (fireplace included, of course) and an adorable moppet. But this journey to a happy ending can’t be a smooth one. The fly in the ointment (or the more crass “t%#d in the punch bowl) is the more than a little unhinged ex. Then the trip goes from hearts and flowers to demented nannies and boiled bunny rabbits. Perhaps as a way to mark the 30th anniversary of Fatal Attraction, movie-goers are now treated to a “female-centric” take on torture and turmoil mixed with thwarted desire and homicide in Unforgettable.

We first meet a battered and bruised Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson) as she is interrogated by a pair of somber stoic police detectives. Ms B is in big

Unforgettable movie review: toxic femininity

MaryAnn’s quick take… Sure, Ice Queen is the villain here. She’s the one who’s in the wrong for doin’ All The Things she was supposed to do, and her promised man-prize was stolen. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): but not like this

Ooo, bitches be crazy… to other women! Why should men get all the suffering? Spread it around! Bitches be gaslighting ladies in here! Who says men should have all the fun? It’s a bitch’s turn, bitches.

Bitch Rosario Dawson think she can steal the white-bread skim-milk husband of Ice Queen Katherine Heigl after all the work she put into him? Bitch is goin’ down. Ice Queen did not never eat cookies and burgers since she was like 12 so that cake-eatin’ beer-drinkin’ and

Unforgettable Review

Author: Stefan Pape

When first introduced to Unforgettable’s chief villain Tessa, played by Katherine Heigl, she seems to have been styled to look like Lucius Malfoy’s unhinged sister. She’s brushing her hair in the mirror, appearing like a Disney villain, and it’s at this point we realise exactly what’s in store, as this early sequence is tonally in line with what transpires; an overtly melodramatic, televisual endeavour that harks back to classic b-movie thrillers of the 90s.

Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson) is overcoming a dark chapter in her life, which saw her ex-partner jailed for domestic abuse, and when we first meet here she’s sat in a police interrogation room, for Michael has been found dead, in her house – and accordingly to the law enforcement, she had reconnected with him as soon as his restraining order was up. Turn back six months, and we

Charlie’s Angels Cheryl Ladd Plays Katherine Heigl’s ‘Deliciously Demented’ Mom in Unforgettable

Charlie’s Angels Cheryl Ladd Plays Katherine Heigl’s ‘Deliciously Demented’ Mom in Unforgettable
Cheryl Ladd played an Angel on TV, but in the new movie Unforgettable, she’s portraying a much less heavenly character.

“Helen is this grandmother nicknamed Lovey, which is incongruous because she’s hardly warm and fuzzy,” the former Charlie’s Angels star tells People of her role in the new thriller. “She’s deliciously demented and a complete perfectionist. She was unlike anyone I’ve played before.”

Ladd is a loving grandma in real life, but she had no problem finding inspiration to play the mom of Katherine Heigl’s character in the thriller.

Unforgettable Review

For how long must misguided romantic thrillers extinguish perverse genre passions? The Boy Next Door set a recent bar for camp-tastic obsessing and killing in the name of love, one that movies like Unforgettable limbo under in the full upright position. Director Denise Di Novi pits ex-wife against bride-to-be, but fumbles tone like a nervous virgin unclasping his or her first bra. Katherine Heigl is less Psycho Stepford Barbie and more Bride Of Frankenstein – in that she emotes the villainy of a dead corpse. When going the route of fake online profiles and orgasm by identity theft, why sell insanity short? At the very least, don’t serve up such easy puns with a title like Unforgettable – which, unsurprisingly, is pretty damn forgettable.

Rosario Dawson stars as Julia Banks, future wife of David Connover (Geoff Stults). Julia uproots her life and moves in with David, beginning their new California adventure together.

‘Unforgettable’ Review: Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson Are in Two Very Different Movies, But It Almost Works

‘Unforgettable’ Review: Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson Are in Two Very Different Movies, But It Almost Works
There are few surprises in “Unforgettable,” the first feature film from longtime producer Denise Di Novi. In hair color, clothing and personality type, the two female leads of this custody-battle-turned-murder-mystery are diametrically opposed at every turn, hurtling toward a final showdown that will probably not end in hugs and an exchange of floral arrangements. But there’s something about the way that Di Novi and writer Christina Hodson never stray from this dynamic that gives the movie a strange heightened, camp-adjacent appeal.

Unforgettable” treats this central struggle over the heart of a family in the same way that a recent Ken Watanabe character does, by surveying the battlefield and coming to a simple, definitive conclusion: “Let them fight.”

The setup for this feud is as simple as its execution. New SoCal transplant Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson) is fresh off a move from a publishing gig in New York to be

Film Review: ‘Unforgettable’

Film Review: ‘Unforgettable’
When Nat King Cole sang “Unforgettable,” he meant the word as a compliment. Not so the Hollywood movie of the same name, in which two crazy exes refuse to be ignored as they attempt to ruin Rosario Dawson’s wedding — one, played by Katherine Heigl, so icily sociopathic that it’s too bad the borderline-campy movie wasn’t willing to go full tilt into B-movie “psycho-Barbie” territory.

A strange choice of directorial debut for longtime Tim Burton enabler Denise Di Novi (whose credits include producing “Heathers,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love”), “Unforgettable” is anything but what its title suggests, dissipating into vapor as soon as the credits roll. But it’s tawdry “Sleeping With the Enemy”-style fun while it lasts, boasting a better cast and splashier production values than the next closest Lifetime movie, while being so ridiculous at times that audiences can’t help but talk back to the screen.

Can Fate of the Furious Continue Its Box Office Winning Streak?

Can Fate of the Furious Continue Its Box Office Winning Streak?
As expected, Universal's The Fate of the Furious debuted in grand fashion last weekend, setting a new box office record for a global opening weekend of $531.9 million, although its $98.7 million domestic debut was far from any sort of record. Over the past few years, the Fast & Furious franchise has established its dominance in the month of April, typically posting huge debuts and repeating atop the box office charts for several weeks in a row, before the summer movie season officially gets under way. The Fate of the Furious is expected to follow that pattern, repeating atop the box office with $49.2 million, easily beating out five new films arriving in nationwide release.

Box Office Mojo reports that, of the five new releases, most will debut in less than half the theaters that Fast & Furious 8 debuted in last weekend (4,310). Warner Bros.' Unforgettable will have the widest release of the bunch with roughly 2,350 theaters,
