Charlie Townsend is a mysterious benefactor who hires 3 beautiful women out of the police academy to work for him as private investigators. Ever since the 70s, Charlie’s Angels has been a staple in entertainment culture as the ladies went from ‘Jiggle TV’ to legitimate feminist icons, also launching the careers of Farrah Fawcett, Jacklyn Smith, and many others.
In 2000, director McG took Charlie’s Angels from television to the big screen as Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu joined forces to fight for Bosley and the titular Charlie in a campy reinvention of the classic. With yet another reboot already underway, we felt it was time to remake Charlie’s Angels RIGHT!

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-weekly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
Clips selected from the 1996 film “Independence Day”, accompanying music written and performed by David Arnold.
