Whenever Willow Smith is done whipping her hair back and forth (this is what she’s going to be known for for the rest of her life), she’ll be starring in a remake of Annie to be produced by Will Smith with music by Jay-Z who already has one track down from his reworking of “It’s a Hard Knock Life” to “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)” from “Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life.”
“I have been writing the script for nearly three years; it’s exciting,” said [Emma] Thompson. “In the autumn, we get to go to L.A. to work with Willow and work on more of the script… Jay-Z has already started working on the music.”
I for one can’t wait to see this remake. I’ve always said that little orphan Annie should have much more swagger. Also, Daddy Warbucks should always walk around with a cane and a pimp cup. That’s going to happen, right? Because I’ll feel cheated if it doesn’t. At least have him be played by Tyler Perry.
