is giving wings to Charlie's Angels
- the actress is making plans to bring the hit TV series back to the small screen. Barrymore has produced and starred in two film adaptations of the 1970s show - and now she's breathing new life into the franchise, which launched Farrah Fawcett
's career, by reviving it for TV.
Barrymore is currently scouting a new trio of sexy crime fighters and insists they must be "incredibly capable, but not take themselves too seriously. That's a tough combination to find."
Meanwhile filmmaker McG
, who directed Barrymore in her Angels films, will serve as consultant on the project - and is aiming to diversify the team of secret agents.
He adds, "This is a more progressive, 2010 take on the idea. We want to be even more progressive in terms of racial background."
McG has named Rihanna
as his dream Angel.
