'Smallville' duo taking on ABC's 'Charlie's Angels'

 ABC’s plan to reboot “Charlie’s Angels” is getting a lift from a superpowered writing team.

Former “Smallville” executive producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are taking over scripting duties on the Sony Pictures Television project, which the network is developing for a potential pilot order and midseason launch.

The duo, whose theatrical credits include “Shanghai Noon” and “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor,” will replace Josh Friedman, who initially was hired to adapt the project. Gough and Millar launched “Smallville” and ran it for seven seasons before exiting the show in 2008.

The rest of the “Angels” team remains unchanged, which includes the producers of the two “Charlie’s Angels” movies: Drew Barrymore, Leonard Goldberg and Nancy Juvonen. Goldberg exec produced the original 1976-81 series.

“Angels” is one of three few disco-era remakes this development season: CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O” made the network’s fall schedule, but NBC’s “The Rockford Files” struck out.

Last week, the CW announced that the upcoming 10th season of “Smallville” will be its last. It will air Fridays in the fall.

They are repped by CAA.

After that 'Birds of Prey' show, it's amazing how quickly another option is put out there.


I wonder how a 'Rockford Files' remake would be handled today? ;D

IMO, Rockford is old enough a concept to do a complete reboot.. maybe get Michael Jai White...

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that you were a kid but what I meant was...
7 years in 'Hollywood time' isn't a long time when you can still option another television project from a failed one.
