Jessica Hynes is not pleased that Charlie’s Angels director ‘McG’ has been entrusted with the task of making an American version of the comedy Spaced, which she helped create with Simon Pegg and starred in as Daisy. It turns out that neither Hynes nor Pegg were consulted about the decision to do a US remake.
In an ‘official statement’ quoted on Daily Pop, Hynes explains:
It might make everyone feel better to know that I am
planning a counter attack; A British re-make of
‘Charlies Angels’ called ‘Charlies Angles’ – about three
female architects who love to design buildings make
biscuits, and wear button up cardigans. That’s gonna
hurt you Mc.G huh?- a remake of one of YOUR films
with no titties?? Huh??! HUH!!!
If only. You can watch episode one of Spaced on YouTube:
