Undercover agents have been all the rage this year on the silver screen, whether they have been men from U.N.C.L.E., Kingsmen, or a dude on an impossible mission. So, where are the ladies? This is the right time to bring back Charlie’s Angels, and Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks may be the ideal candidate for the gig.

But who would Banks cast as the next generation of Angels? The last time we saw the ass-kicking ladies on screen, they were personified by Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore. Even though Barrymore recently confided plans for a potential third movie, this franchise reset likely would look for fresh faces to fill its titular trio. We went ahead and picked 9 beautiful and talented actresses who we think would have the chemistry, the comedic chops and the action background needed to play one of Charlie’s Angels. Who did we miss? Let us know in the comments section, but these are our best choices:

Zoe Saldana

Based on both the original television show and the two McG movies, Charlie’s three Angels need to have specific qualities if they are going to fly. They need to be attractive. They need to be resilient. They need to be intelligent. And they need to be funny. Saldana has ticked off all of those boxes in big-budget fare ranging from Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Trek to The Losers and Colombiana. Her Avatar commitments might keep her from signing on, but I think I’d rather see her in an Angels adventure then in more Pandora excursions.
