Will Smith To Remake Annie - With Daughter Willow In The Title Role!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway BabiesFilm FlickersJay ZWill SmithWillow Smith


It took us a second to adjust to the idea, but the more and more we think about it….this MAY have some potential.

Will Smith is reported to be looking to produce a remake of the classic musical Annie - with his daughter Willow in the title role!

The actor, and his company Overbrook Entertainment, are developing the project with Sony, and have even reached out to Jay-Z, and have asked him to create original music for the flick, which is thought at this point to be a contemporary adaptation.

However, there's no word yet on whether or not it will feature any of the musical's original songs.


Definitely a ballsy move to tamper with such a well-known, and much-loved classic, but we think that updating the story to modern times and focusing on the recession - maybe as a mirror to The Great Depression - with an updated sound could actually work! And work WELL!

We just hope that little Willow has the acting chops to carry such a huge story! People are not going to be happy if this flops!

What do U think?? Do U want to see an updated Annie??

    This whole family is annoying!! Watching them on talk shows is hideous! The kids say stupid, snotty, self important, arrogant things while the idiot parents laugh hysterically at it all. Yikes. If that's what it's like to have kids …. no thanks. I'll stick to being on my own. As far as making Annie over again, I don't really care. I just would NEVER see anything with the Smith's dumass kids in it. Yuck.

    it would be quite funny watching willow smith singing "its a hard knock life" considering she gets anything she wants given to her on a silver platter
