Will Smith and Jay-Z are going produce a remake of Annie, the 1982 family movie that was based on the Broadway of the same name. Guess who will have the lead role: Willow Smith, yep, Will Smith's daughter! I guess Will Smith wants the film to be a stepping stone for his daughter's movie career like the recent remake of Karate Kid was for his son Jaden. According to Vulture Scriptwriter Emma Thompson is in negotiations to write an updated screenplay for the remake. The film is listed for a release in 2013 by IMDb.
Here's the movie trailer of the original Annie film:
"An orphan, Annie, and her dog Sandy are placed in the lap of luxury for a week as a part of a publicity campaign for Oliver Warbucks. However, Annie's stay turns out to be much more than anyone had bargained for as she works her way into everyone’s hearts and learns a few things for herself."
Can't say I'm excited about this remake of Annie. But well, if Willow Smith is as talented as her father and her brother I guess the film will be entertaining at least.
Anyway, more details about the movie Annie soon!
