Playbill.com reports that Willow Smith, daughter of Will and Jada-Pinkett Smith, will be starring as the leading lady in the remake of the 1982 movie musical, "Annie," which will begin production in Spring of 2013 in NYC.

Rapper and mogul Jay-Z, who revamped the "Annie" classic It's the Hard Knock Life into Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) for his third album Vol.2... Hard Knock Life, will be making additions to the remake's score.

I just wish the most qualified actor would get the job. Just because she Will Smith daughter, she can get these movies served to her on a silver platter. F#ck these famous kids getting everything they want.

Willow Smith needs to be in school...That b**** is nothing close to smart, she can't spell, she can't read...She needs to be in school for a little while longer, her parents have money they shouldn't be so quick to have her working.

they just ruined a very great classic. don't care if they use a black actor. I guess nobody learns that you don't mess up a great movie like the karate kid. SMH
