Will Gluck to Direct "Annie" Remake, with Will Smith and Jay-Z

Posted: January 30th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Will Gluck to Direct "Annie" Remake, with Will Smith and Jay-ZSubmit Comment
Sony Pictures has announced that Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits) is in negotiations to direct a big screen version of the classic Broadway musical "Annie." It's being produced by Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jay-Z.

"We are excited to work with Will Gluck and Sony Pictures Entertainment," said Jay-Z. "My well-known affinity for the classic 'Hard Knock Life' makes 'Annie' a natural vehicle to lead us into the world of the cinema."

The film will be set in the modern day. The studio is anticipating a late fall start and is eyeing a 2014 release date. Willow Smith, the daughter of Will and Jada, was original on board to star, but that has changed. "Willow was nine years old when we started developing this project, and has since grown out of the role," said producer Miguel Melendez.

A black girl is going to play a ginger. Next they will make a Martin Luther King biopic starring Daniel Day Lewis as the lead. Oh wait, that would be racist.

There are a lot of things to look forward to in life, this movie, & anything related to gay-z, are not some of those things.
