Cameron Diaz shoots down “Charlie’s Angels 3” rumors, embraces 3D
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Cameron Diaz sat down with me last weekend to discuss her latest picture, “The Green Hornet,” in which she plays feisty secretary Lenore Case alongside Seth Rogen’s Britt Reid. The film, directed by Michel Gondry, is presented in 3D on designated screens, and I asked Diaz if she thought the revived technology was here to stay.
“I do,” she said, adding that it was just another tool at the fingertips of modern filmmakers eager to find new ways to tell original stories.
This seemed like a softball, but I lobbed it to Diaz anyway. Is there any chance we’d ever see “Charlie’s Angels 3D” with herself, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu.
“Oh, that is an interesting idea,” Diaz told me. “But I don’t think that will ever happen. There probably will be another ‘Angels’ film, but I don’t think we’ll come back for it. Though I like the 3D idea.”
Well, Diaz was half right. The Angels are coming back, except they’ll be going back to television, where they started.
EW reports that an “Angels” remake just got the greenlight at ABC, and will be set in Miami. No word on casting, though much like the new “Hawaii Five-O,” it likely will go sleek and young. Will they get it ready in time for next fall? We’ll see.
In the meantime, “The Green Hornet” with Rogen and Diaz opens everywhere today.
