'Angels': The Write Stuff?

09/25/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

The movie version of "Charlie's Angels" continues to have one devil of a time. Besides bickering on the set -- which reportedly exploded into an angry shouting match between stars Lucy Liu and Bill Murray recently -- now comes news that the script has been through at least 30 (count 'em, 30) rewrites, says the New York Post. In fact, so complicated is the system of numbering new drafts of the screenplay, claims the Post, that the screenwriters have been through nine different colors three times before finally settling upon Yellow 4. (New script drafts are traditionally duplicated on different colored sheets of paper, to distinguish them from earlier versions.) Despite everything, the movie, which also stars Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz, is still expected to open, as scheduled, in November.
