Annie trailer

by Matt Z

Another reboot of Annie is set for release this December, just in time for Christmas.  This version promises to be different from the rest.  It's set in modern day (complete with facebook references) and has a hip-hop edge to it musically, thanks to producers Jay-Z and Will Smith.  Speaking of Smith, his vision was to have his daughter play Annie and launch her career in movies in a big way.  But she grew up and instead, Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis will be playing the lead role.  Jamie Foxx plays Will Stacks, the new Daddy Warbucks, and we know he can act and sing.  But what about Cameron Diaz who will be playing Miss Hannigan?  Full disclosure, she is one of my least favorite actors to watch. She annoys me greatly.  

I know it's a reboot, but all things considered, I'm intrigued.
