"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."
The story is based on a 1930s comic strip called 'Little Orphan Annie'. This remake is going to be directed by Will Gluck (Easy A) from a script by Emma Thompson which was later rewritten by Aline Brosh McKenna. The remake is expected to start this Fall for a mid 2014 release.
