Will Smith is reportedly eyeing a new role for his daughter, Willow, as the star of a remake of the original musical film Annie.
The Smith family is churning out the hits these days; this summer, Will developed the Sony movie The Karate Kid starring his son Jaden. The movie was a box office winner, making over $350 million worldwide, which more than likely sparked the interest in Annie.
While no details of the reboot have surfaced, it’s rumored that rapper Jay-Z, who worked with Willow on her hit single “Whip My Hair,” is in talks to collaborate on the music for the film.
Project reps were reportedly “tight-lipped” about whether the movie would be a contemporary version and whether it will include any original songs.
Eh, I don’t know about this. Do we really need to mess with a classic like Annie? Hello? ”Tomorrow” is my song, peeps!
