"Beasts of the Southern Wild" Actress in talks for Jay-Z's "Annie" Remake

Posted: February 8th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Beasts of the Southern Wild" Actress in talks for Jay-ZSubmit Comment
About a week ago, Sony Pictures announced that it hired Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits) to direct a big screen version of the classic Broadway musical "Annie," that will be produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z.

Originally the plan was to cast Will Smith's daughter, Willow, as the title character, but that changed with Willow got too old. Now comes word that "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhane Wallis, who is 9-years-old and the youngest actress to be nominated for an Oscar, is in talks to play Annie.

Based on a daily comic strip that debuted in 1924, "Little Orphan Annie" told the story of a little girl who, after escaping from an orphanage, is taken in by the rich Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks.

The film will be set in the modern day. The studio is anticipating a late fall start and is eyeing a 2014 release date.

....Why is "war" pronounced like "wor"?

Slightly random, slightly relevant.

Have not got a problem with this little girl, but I cannot look at that Jay-z thing, his lips are so f*cking big it makes me quite ill!

Hate the whole "black influence" on films today.

Not that I give a damn because I have no plans of watching it (I didn't like the original) but do you f*ckers have lives?

Meh...it's not really that popular, I'd say.

There would be some adjustment from the original (Burnett/ Curry are great) such as being PC to avoid orphsns bring mistreated, richest person is not that big of a deal nowadays or compared to A. Jolie's kid collecting, and there is a risk of seeing the upcoming syrupy pull on your heart strings will not being effective. The biggest thing against the project is the two rappers...it'll br a really hit or miss.

The positive side to this project is that it will remember & expose many to the original (its schmaltzy, yes, but its a classic), it will be big with the tweens demographic, & what many expect to deliver a banging soundtrack considering the talent.

All this is preliminary until a trailer is shown...
