Stewart is best known for her roles in the “Twilight” franchise. Last year, Stewart starred in “Charlie’s Angeles”. At the time, Elizabeth Banks’ and Kristen Stewart’s reboot of the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ franchise flopped for Sony Pictures. It was the third ‘Charlie’s Angeles’ movie and tanked at the box office. The film made only $8.6 million, well below even the most modest $12 million expectations. The movie was made for approximately $48 million.

It is difficult to say what went wrong with ‘Charlie’s Angels.’ Current reviews show the movie at around 59% on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics enjoying Kristen Stewart’s comedic acting abilities. The previous ‘Charlie’s Angels’ movie starring Drew Barrymore made $40 million.

In relevant casting news, Kristen Stewart recently wrapped production on the new movie “Happiest Season”, which filmed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ‘Happiest Season’ will star Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis. The movie is set for a U.S. release on November 20, 2020, and will be directed by Clea DuVall. The movie is described as the following: “It follows a young woman (Stewart) whose plan to propose to her girlfriend (Davis) while at her family’s annual holiday party is upended when she discovers her partner hasn’t yet come out to her conservative parents.”
