Noah Centineo is finally ready to make the transition to the big screen. After a busy summer that included star-making turns in the back-to-back Netflix rom-coms To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, Centineo has signed on to Sony’s Charlie’s Angels reboot, Variety reports.
Centineo will join the previously announced trio of Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balins, who are set to play the titular Angels, while Patrick Stewart and Djimon Hounsou will star as two of the Bosleys. Elizabeth Banks, who will also direct the film, will play the third Bosley.
Jenny Han, author of the To All the Boys novel, tweeted a congrats to Centineo shortly after the news broke.
Fans of the original series, which took the world by storm in the 1970s, will likely point out that there was originally just one Bosley, the enigmatic head of the show’s fictional detective agency. That the film will have three Bosleys instead of one will likely be just one of the many changes being made, as the studio looks to usher in the Angels for a whole new generation of fans.
That’s exactly why adding someone like Centineo is a huge step in the right direction; he will reportedly play a love interest of one of the Angels. Not much else is known about the plot, other than that it will center on the three Angels as they work for the Townsend Agency, which has “expanded globally,” The Wrap reports.
As for Centineo, expect this to be the first real entry into his new career as a major movie star. In fact, he may have hinted at the project in a recent interview with Esquire. “There’s one specific script out now that I want to do. It’s f*cking incredible,” Centineo said. “It’s a romantic comedy action film. It’s just so perfect. So great — oh, my God.” The film he was referring to was reportedly a Sony project, which just so happens to be the same studio behind the Charlie’s Angels reboot. Does this mean we’re about to get our first look at Peter Kavinsky: Action Hero?
We’ll find out, when Charlie’s Angels hits theaters on September 27, 2019.
