    Can you imagine Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o in more perfect roles than as Charlie’s Angels?

    If like us your answer is no, then you’re in luck.

    The two actresses are reportedly being eyed for the reboot of Charlie’s Angels, according to Variety, with the Twilight star being considered for a starring role as one of the members of the female private detective agency.

    Casting is already underway, and Sony is said to be also interested in Nyong’o for the film, among other stars – including Moonlight‘s Janelle Monae.

    The new franchise’s leading ladies will be stepping into the shoes of Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu – with Elizabeth Banks coming on board to direct – set for release in summer 2019.

    With that line up, the upcoming film is sure to be a box office hit – especially considering the 2000 franchise before it grossed around $264 million worldwide from the first film alone.

    While nothing has been confirmed just yet, social media is already buzzing about the idea of Nyong’o and Stewart grabbing two of the lead roles – and the film is set to be an incredibly empowering female-led franchise.

    Bring on June 2019.
