An “Annie” Remake Featuring….
Willow Smith!! It’s true. Willow’s dad (Hollywood Actor Will Smith) is talking with Sony about a possible remake of this classic children’s favorite! Will must be happy with the success of his son Jayden (who starred in the remake of “The Karate Kid”) because he’s back in the executive producer’s frame of mind for his baby girl.
The “Whip My Hair” singer would definitely have big shoes to fill and a lot of critical eyes. It will be interesting to see if: 1) The movie actually gets produced and filmed 2) If she can pull it off. Guessing from the way she’s got her song stuck in the minds of girls and women of all ages, she should have no problem. Especially with an acting coach like her daddy!
There’s also talk of rap mogul Jay Z taking on a significant role in the film’s musical direction. Man, that soundtrack is going to be great! A collab with Willow and Jay? The makings of a HOT song!
