Well, good morning, angels (and vampires).

According to Variety, Kristen Stewart (Twilight ) is all set to star in the upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot.

Look, there's no doubt Stewart is a talented actress – haters can be directed to Clouds of Sils Maria – but, so far, Stewart has proved herself to be a very specific, very pouty, type of onscreen presence. Stewart has never been necessarily "fun" to watch, at least not in the way we expect of our angels. Though, we do hope she proves us wrong. 

The bad-ass trio will be rounded out by Naomi Scott, who has also been tapped to play Jasmine in the upcoming live-action Aladdin, and newcomer Ella Balinska.

Additionally, the action flick will be helmed by Elizabeth Banks, who previously directed the rather problematic Pitch Perfect 2. All of this is to say, we don't have high hopes for this Charlie's Angels reboot.

"Charlie’s Angels, for me, is one of the original brands to celebrate the empowered woman since its debut in the '70s," Banks said in a statement. "This film honors the legacy of Charles Townsend and his agency while introducing a new era of modern and global Angels. I couldn’t be more excited to work with Kristen, Naomi and Ella to bring this chapter to fans around the world."

Along with directing, Banks will have a bit role as Bosley, who was portrayed by Bill Murray and Bernie Mac in previous Charlie's Angels iterations.

As for the storyline, you can expect to see the Townsend Agency transformed into a "worldwide security and intelligence service that has teams around the planet," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Charlie's Angles first debuted as a television series in '76, before becoming a major movie franchise in '00 starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu. There was, regrettably, a series revival in '11 that was canceled after one season. 

The new Charlie’s Angels is set to hit theaters on Sept. 27, 2019.
