Noah Centineo, an on-the-rise actor who recently made a major splash on Netflix in the teenage rom-com To All the Boys I've Loved Before, has landed a role in the upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot. This is just the latest in exciting casting news for the film; in addition to stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska as the eponymous crime fighters, big names like Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games), and Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond) have been confirmed.
The film, which is due out in 2019, officially began production in September, with Elizabeth Banks at the helm. The actor first directed Pitch Perfect 2, and this will be her second time behind the camera. Banks previously remarked on how excited she was for "the constant challenge" of directing. In addition to directing, Banks will also produce the film, is credited as one of the writers, and has an on-screen part. She will also play one of the Bosley characters, alongside Stewart, Hounsou, and possibly others.
Variety reports that Centineo has been cast as a love interest for one of the leading ladies. In addition to significant others, there is a lot of room for new characters in this reboot. The idea of having multiple Bosley characters reflects something Kristen Stewart said in an interview, claiming that there will be "a whole network of angels," likely all reporting to different leaders. In the previous iterations, including the original 1976 TV series and the films released in 2000 and 2003, the focus was only on one group of three women and their boss. It will be interesting to see how this changes the universe.
Despite his active social media presence, Centineo has yet to comment on the news. Understandably, as the actor has been very busy as of late. Following the August release of To All the Boys, he was busy promoting another Netflix teen comedy, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser. On top of that, he has another film due out this year, Swiped, and, in addition to Charlie's Angels, two more films, The Diary and The Stand-In, scheduled to be released in 2019. Fans are also speculating he's landed a role in Matt Reeves' The Batman, but that's just a rumor for now and hasn't been confirmed.
Centineo has only recently become well known, but he's been acting for nearly a decade. Prior to To All the Boys, he was best known for his main role on the Freeform TV series The Fosters. He will appear in two episodes of the show's spinoff series, Good Trouble, in 2019.
