The Elizabeth Banks reboot of comedy action adventure “Charlie’s Angels” has recruited Sam Claflin of “The Hunger Games” as a fourth person to play the role of secret agent handler John Bosley.
From “The Hunger Games” to spy games, Sam Claflin is the latest name to join secret agent action comedy “Charlie’s Angels,” and the fourth to be installed as one of several spy team handlers known as Bosley.
That’s a change from the TV series and movies that have come before, in which Bosley was a single person, and someone who connected the Angels with reclusive philanthropist Charlie Townsend.
Previously announced to the Bosley part have been both Patrick Stewart (“Star Trek” and “X-Men” franchises) and Djimon Hounsou (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Blood Diamond”), while another “Hunger Games” co-star, Elizabeth Banks, is not only directing but also co-starring as one of the Angels, having co-written the new movie’s script.
And yes, Banks will be playing another Bosley.
Revealed as the unnamed trio of Angels are Kristen Stewart (“The Twilight Saga”), rising star Naomi Scott (the “Power Rangers” movie, 2019’s “Aladdin,” British crime drama “Lewis”) and relative newcomer Ella Balinska (another British TV crime drama series “Midsomer Murders”).
Filming began late September 2018 ahead of a planned release in late September 2019.
