Charlie’s Angels was a 2000 movie that reached greater heights in cinema. The notable film, directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol worked alongside Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and, Cameron Diaz and created an iconic trio that created a franchise.
The director created the original 2000 film and a sequel to it titled Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. The third part of the franchise, directed by Elizabeth Banks, received negative reviews around the world and Joseph McGinty also partook in the leg-pulling as he subtly took a dig at the failed movie.
When Joseph McGinty Took A Sly Dig At Charlie’s Angels
With the first two parts of the franchise raking in millions at the box office, director Joseph McGinty was not involved in the third part of the franchise. The 2019 movie starred Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska in the lead roles.
But the original trio of Charlie’s Angels featured Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and, Cameron Diaz and those movies were quite amazing. In an interview, director Joseph McGinty (also known as McG) talked about the failed 2019 movie and how he wants to do a fourth part with the original trio if they would agree to it.
“It would take a long discussion with those three wonderful performers who I adore. 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.”
The “chatter” word was quite a subtle dig at the 2019 Elizabeth Banks movie. Although the director complimented her for her take on the movie, it seems that there was an underlying tone of pride in his own project.
Joseph McGinty Wants To Continue Directing Charlie’s Angels
In that interview, McG further talked about how he wants to pitch another film to the original trio of Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and, Cameron Diaz for another sequel. McG stated that he indeed has second thoughts about the project since he also wants to pass the torch to another director.
“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. t’s just sort of like there can be a keeper of the flame and you can pass the torch.”
The director ended his talk on a sweet note with how the original trio put him on the map and essentially made him famous.
“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.”
With some negative reviews but deeming it a “cult-classic” film, Charlie’s Angels is available to stream on Paramount+.
