The reboot train keeps on rolling. Less than 24 hours after Disney announced it would be bringing Mary Poppins back to the big screen, Sony is looking to resurrect the three kick-ass ladies known as Charlie’s Angels.

Though details on the reboot are scarce, including its plot or prospective cast, Elizabeth Banks is currently “in talks” to direct the reboot, alongside her Brownstone production company. Banks made her directorial debut with this year’s Pitch Perfect 2; she most recently appeared in this summer’s Magic Mike XXL and the Netflix reboot of Wet Hot American Summer.

The Charlie’s Angels franchise first began as a ’70s TV series starring Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, and Kate Jackson. In 2000, Sony was at the helm of the official movie, which counted Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as the titular characters; its sequel, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, followed three years later.
