"Annie" Movie 2014 Starring Jamie Foxx & Cameron Diaz, First Trailer Teaser Released, Watch Here
Annie is an upcoming American musical comedy-drama film directed by Will Gluck and produced by Jay-Z and Will Smith. It stars Quvenzhané Wallis in the title role and Jamie Foxx in the role of Will Stacks, an update of the character Daddy Warbucks. It is a contemporary adaptation of the musical of the same name, which in turn is based upon the 1924 comic strip Little Orphan Annie by Harold Gray. This is the third film adaptation after the 1982 theatrical film and the 1999 made-for-television film.
Premise: Wealthy businessman Benjamin Stacks comes to the aid of a young girl living in an orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan.
In January 2013, Easy A director Will Gluck was hired to direct, but Willow Smith had dropped out of the film. By February, Beasts of the Southern Wild star and Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis had replaced Smith in the lead role, and the film had secured a Christmas 2014 release. In March, the search for the rest of the cast continued, with Justin Timberlake rumored for the role of Daddy Warbucks. This was proven false when Jamie Foxx signed on for the role, now named Will Stacks. In June, Cameron Diaz was cast as the evil Miss Hannigan, after Sandra Bullock declined. In July, Rose Byrne joined the cast as Grace Farrell, Stacks's faithful assistant and in August, Boardwalk Empire star Bobby Cannavale joined the cast as a "bulldog political adviser" to Will Stacks. In September the rest of the cast was announced with Amanda Troya, Nicolette Pierini, Eden Duncan-Smith and Zoe Colletti as the orphans.
Sony announced the remake in January 2011, production began in August 2013.
