Will Smith Looking To Remake "Annie" Musical With His Daughter Willow In The Lead Role. Jay-Z In Talks To Work On Some Of The Music

Will Smith is looking into remaking the popular 1982 musical "Annie", with his daughter Willow cast in the lead role.

Variety is reporting that Sony and Will's Overbrook Entertainment production company would back the project.

Sony is said to be especially interested because it did very well financially on the "Karate Kid" remake, which starred Will's son, Jaden. The film has grossed $350 million worldwide to date.

Jay-Z reportedly is in talks to work on music for the film.

Hov's addition would be very interesting considering one of his biggest hits "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)" sampled the song "Hard Knock Life" from the original movie.

Reps for the project have not revealed whether or not the remake will include all new songs, or also have some from the original.

by the way, 2 sides here...

1 side is saying it's not right to remake a white thing black
The other side is saying white stole from black

How does it feel to switch sides huh?

What the smiths are doing isn't racial, it's colorless, it's called industry. Will prolly bought the rights to make the movie. What u think, selling the rights was based off a racial principle? I don't think so. It's all about money.

That was a great film. One of my favorite musicals as a child along with the Bway play. I think that it will be hard to recreate. Some films are classics and can't be recreated. Like there will never be another Grease. And there will never be another Dynasty (so the thought of the upcoming Dynasty film makes me cringe). I would prefer to see an Annie-inspired but more original film. Besides, little orphan Annie has curly red hair and freckles. How would Willow pull that off? A more original concept would be better. Like the film Clueless was a somewhat original adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma - it followed the story line of the British classic in a recognizable way but was an original film typifying a segment of American culture.

"Just thinking about tomorrow clears away the cob webs and the sorrows." Classic!! .

@ BLACK JESUS
ur a f****** idiot it shouldnt be remade for the same reason karate kid should not have been remade, because their perfectly watchable. a kid today can enjoy annie the same way a kid who enjoyed it the year it released. unlike something like omega man because a kid today would not enjoy omega man like they would i am legend. but maybe you cant understand that because ur an oppressed black man. lol.
