LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: It has been 20 years since Drew Barrymore was seen in 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle', the sequel to 2000's 'Charlie's Angels', which she also starred in and produced. The actor has now revealed she isn't opposed to returning to the iconic franchise if the opportunity arises. Although the recent Kristen Stewart-starrer film is considered the third installment in the 'Charlie's Angels' film series and serves as a continuation of the story that began with the television series of the same name by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts, there is some interest in the OG angels' comeback.

The new film stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska as the new generation of Angels who are working for a private detective agency named the Townsend Agency. The 2019 film eventually grossed 73.3 million dollars worldwide against an estimated production budget of 48 to 55 million dollars and an estimated advertising budget of 50 million dollars. However, fans are known to often revisit the 2000 'Charlie's Angels' for the iconic dramatic elements of the film.

According to CBR, in a recent interview with People, Barrymore said if an opportunity knocks at her doorstep to come back for a third film of 'Charlie's Angels', she would be up for it at a go because she utterly enjoyed making the first films. A potential reunion is something that Mindy Kaling floated on a recent episode of 'The Drew Barrymore Show'.

 

"Those are interesting challenges because they have been established. That really is building upon something," Barrymore said. "There's so much history there that they don't feel like [the work of] making films. It's like, 'Do you want to spend your life doing that? With those people?' Yes. I would show up. I really would."

Barrymore also said that she's also open to other film projects not necessarily related to 'Charlie's Angels' - particularly if they involved Adam Sandler. Barrymore and Sandler previously starred together in '50 First Dates', 'Blended', and 'The Wedding Singer'.

Regardless, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu were seen as three women working in a private detective agency in Los Angeles in the 2000s movie. The film grossed over 264 million dollars worldwide. It also received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics, with praise for the performances of Diaz, Barrymore, and Liu as well as its action sequences and humor.
