Action! Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh film a scene with a burning car for the pilot of Charlie's Angels in Miami
They hired three gorgeous actresses to step into come of the most iconic roles in Hollywood history.
Rachael Taylor, Minka Kelly and Annie Ilonzeh have been pictured laughing and strutting about the set of Charlie's Angels as they film the pilot episode of the new series.
And it appears that producers are sparing no expense on the Seventies remake. The stars were seen filming an action sequence today that involved an explosion and a burning car and motorbike.

The girls earlier filmed a less complicated scene, looking more like models in a clothing or cosmetics campaign as they strutted along in matching white dresses.
The trio were seen together on location in Miami, Florida, today as they filmed scenes from their new show.

The actresses strutted their stuff in angelic white dresses and nude heels, and kept their costumes pristine in between shots by wrapping up in dressing gowns bearing their initials.
The trio appear to really be bonding on set, giggling and chatting just as much offscreen as they were on camera.
All three girls were cast for the new series in January by bosses at ABC after the pilot script was finally put into production just after the new year.

They are all relative unknowns in the UK, although their faces will be familiar among American TV and film audiences.
Minka, 30, is one of the stars of high school TV series Friday Night Lights star and was also voted Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” of 2010.
She will play Marisa, a former U.S. Marine who is a 'weapons expert trained in all forms of hand-to-head combat' and will be a 'neat freak' in her everyday life.

Australian-born Taylor, 26, who is known for her role as signals analyst Maggie in the first Transformers film, will play Abby.
She is the youngest Angel but is a 'beautiful and privileged daughter of a notorious Wall Street crook who is an expert con artist herself, as well as a Krav Maga expert'.
Annie, 27, plays Kate, an ex-cop who is a martial arts master.
As fans know, Charlie is never seen on screen and is only through a speakerphone giving his orders to his Angels and was voiced by John Forsyth in the TV series and the films.

Robert Wagner has reportedly been offered the role for the new series, but nothing has yet been confirmed, while Charlie's liason Bosley, who was played by David Doyle and then Bill Murray in the first film and Bernie Mac in the second, will be played by Ramon Rodriguez.
The show is being executive produced by Drew Barrymore who starred in the 2000 film and its 2003 sequel alongside Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz.
There will be a couple of differences to the original series, including a different crime every episode instead of a continuing story throughout the series.
The originals: Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith in the first TV series in 1976
