Remember the “Charlie’s Angels” movies? Directed by McG? Starring Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz? No? Could be because it’s been more than half a decade since the second movie in the series, 2003’s “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.” It wasn’t half-bad either, especially if you’re into the whole “grrl power” blockbuster vibe.
So where has the series gone? “Full Throttle” didn’t review so well, but the worldwide gross of $259 million more than doubled its $120 million budget. You’d think that with three hot leading ladies, a veteran blockbuster director and lots more money to be made, a third “Charlie’s Angels” would be a foregone conclusion. Too bad the trio of “Angels” stars have a work ethic that “sucks.” At least according to Cameron Diaz, who spoke with MTV on the series at San Diego Comic-Con.
