Following conflicting reports last week, Entertainment Weekly confirms that Transformers actress Rachael Taylor has signed on to play con artist Abby in ABC’s remake of Charlie’s Angels.

She joins Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly as weapons expert Marisa and Annie Ilonzeh as martial arts master Kate in the modern-day version of the 1970s television phenomenon, which relocates the trio of sexy private eyes to Miami.

Although early reports had Gossip Girl‘s Mark Piznarski being courted to direct the pilot, Entertainment Weekly now says that Marcos Siega (The Vampire Diaries) has closed the deal. The series is being produced by Smallville collaborators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, who also wrote the pilot. It’s executive-produced Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen, producers of the 2000 movie Charlie’s Angels and the 2003 sequel Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, and Leonard Goldberg, one of the producers of the original series.
