Could we have another Charlie’s Angels sequel on the way with the original cast? Director McG has revealed that he is keen.

The first flick hit the big screen in 2000, starring Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu in the leading roles as private detectives Natalie Cook, Dylan Sanders and Alex Munday respectively.

They reprised their characters for the 2003 sequel, Full Throttle, before for a reboot in 2019, starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.

Speaking in a new interview, McG – full name Joseph McGinty Nichol – spoke of plans to get the old gang back together for one last adventure.

‘It would take a long discussion with those three wonderful performers who I adore,’ he told . ‘I was very happy to see Elizabeth Banks take the helm and do what she did, which was fun. There always seems to be chatter about that.

‘I’m very happy to discuss it with Drew and Cameron and Lucy, but at the same time, I’m very happy to pass the torch. I mean, I love the Tim Burton Batman movies, I love the new Batman movies. It’s just sort of like there can be a keeper of the flame and you can pass the torch.

‘Who knows? Maybe we’ve got one left in us that tells a very compelling story if the opportunity presents itself.

‘I love the three of them so much. They put me on the map. They looked out for me when I was a first-time filmmaker. I was very nearly fired off that film on many, many occasions, and Drew stood up for me and I’m forever indebted to her. And obviously, those are three performers where God broke the mold. They don’t make ’em like that. I mean, those are three special ones.’

Although it has been 23 years since the first movie was released, the iconic trio are just as close as ever, and reunited on Drew’s talk show in 2020 for a much-needed catch up.

Introducing her pals on the episode, the host announced: ‘We are friends, we are fellow angels… please welcome my partners in crime and life.

‘The thing I love about our friendship is that we have been there in all the big and important moments.

‘We’ve also been there in the small moments and the casual moments, and the reason we are such good friends is because it’s real and we go through real stuff with each other. It’s not a Hollywood fairytale.’
