Quvenzhané Wallis Stars in Annie Movie Remake

Quvenzhané Wallis is perhaps the most charming child star today. After her Oscar-worthy debut in Beasts of the Southern Wild, she's set to take the role of Annie. After weeks of being in the rumor mill, finally Columbia Pictures announced that Wallis will indeed take te role in the upcoming remake of the famous musical. She was however the second choice, since the producers of this film (Will and Jada Smith) have their daughter Willow Smith to play the role.

"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.
