A Charlie's Angels reboot is on the way, with Elizabeth Banks possibly at the helm.

According to Variety, Banks is in negotiations for an update to the Sony franchise, and would also sign on as producer via her production company, Brownstone.

The actress recently made her feature-length directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2, in which she also appeared as a cappella color commentator Gail Abernathy-McKadden-Feinberger, reprising her role from the first film. 

Charlie's Angels last surfaced as a 2011 ABC TV series, but was canceled and only aired seven episodes. A pair of films—Charlie's Angels and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle—debuted in 2000 and 2003, respectively, starring Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore. 

The original series aired from 1976 to 1981 on ABC.
