We recently reported that Willow Smith was in talks to be apart of the remake of the 1982 classic, Annie, and now we have confirmation that Willow will indeed be bringing Annie back to life!
“Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad said, ‘The time is right to bring back ‘Annie’ to the big screen. Of course, we’re true believers in Willow’s talent and believe she will be perfect in this role. Combining Willow with the Overbrook team that reimagined ‘Karate Kid’ and the spectacular Jay-Z makes this a dream project.'”
Reports also state that Willow’s parents, Will and Jada, along with Jay-Z will be producing the movie as well. Jay-Z recently spoke about the remake by saying, “The Overbrook Entertainment family and I have a unified vision. We’ve already produced a Tony Award winning play and we’re developing a true superstar in Willow.”
What do you guys think of Willow playing Annie?
