Emma Thompson to Write "Annie" Remake for Will Smith and Jay-Z

Posted: June 24th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Emma Thompson to Write "Annie" Remake for Will Smith and Jay-ZSubmit Comment
We recently reported that Will Smith and Jay-Z have been developing a remake of the Broadway musical "Annie," with plans for Smith's daughter Willow to star and "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy to direct.

NY Mag has now learned that Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress Emma Thompson is in negotiations to write the script. It's very likely that Smith approached Thompson about the musical while working together on the set of "Men in Black 3."

Smith and Jay-Z recently co-produced the successful Broadway production "Fela!," which earned a total of eleven Tony Award nominations in 2010. Willow has also been signed to Jay-Z's record label, which produced her first single titled "Whip My Hair." And Jay-Z previously sampled the classic "Annie" song "It's the Hard Knock Life" in his single "Hard Knock Life."

Must be terrible to be a child and have no say how you want the rest of your life to unfold, especially when it clearly means you're going to be whored out by your parents in front of patronizing audiences that, under the surface, can't stand you or your work.

I wonder if those e-meters at the scientology center told Jada and Will to whore out there children? At least L Ron isn't around to invite the kids onto his party boat.
