This could be amazing!

Sony Pictures is currently eying Glee creator Ryan Murphy to direct Willow Smith in the
remake of Annie.

The discussions are in the early stages, but considering what he's done with Glee Murphy wouldn't be a bad choice.

Do U agree???

    Somebody stop this project now. Don't let Will Smith and his icky offspring besmirch the honor of Annie.



  2. 2

    No, no, no! This would be completely wrong! Don't ruin Annie



  3. 3

    WTF first that Smith boy is the new karate kid and now Willow is the new Annie…Annie..the white girl with red curly hair?? how do you go from that to Willow Smith…UGH I'm so sick of it..why does it seem that even though black americans are only 12% of the population they are the majority in music, movies and commercials now??



  4. 4

    Willow Smith is bad enough. But this douche bag directing is terrible. This guy is a moron and little bitch and should just stick to gay ass glee until it ends, hopefully soon, then go away,.



  5. 5

    THIS IS THE WORST IDEA IN THE HISTORY OF BAD IDEAS!!!! WHAT'S NEXT, JUSTIN BEIBER AS KUNTA QUINTE IN ROOTS!!!!!

    will smith WILL DO ANYTHING TO MAKE HIS KIDS POPULAR! what happens when they hit their 20s and not a 'cute' made up kid? Can only buy so many projects, can't buy talent, can't MAKE PEOPLE LOVE YOU. It they don't transition over, will they be like the other 'WASHED' UP FORMER KID ACTORS? Okay, they probably will have daddy and Mommy's money, but look at what has happened to alot of former child actors…. lohan, bonaduce, plato, coleman, etc. Some, like Jodie Foster make it, but MOST DON'T.

    Re: BottomAceNJ – That is the funniest thing I have read in a long time but oh so true. Leave Annie alone. It's a classic and her character should'nt change. Red curly hair and fair skined. Idiots those Smiths are, Idiots.



  8. 8

    Willow Smith as ANNIE??? don't they realize that whoever takes on that role must be able to actually SING? and no, "Whip My Hair" is NOT singing!



  9. 9

    Just as a matter of principle I hope this movie loses a record amount of money. I guess Will and his Scientologists buddies think they own Hollywood!!!!! I have two friends who are involved in music theater and I have watched more talented children perform in our local theater productions. These children possess more talent and skill than Will's entitled spoiled BRATS! These kids,however, go to school and do not have a rich sugar daddy to buy them recording opportunities with JayZ or roles in movies and shows. No wonder the film industry is losing money.

    This is sad that these spoiled kids are ruining what i call a classic>>>>maybe they should remake.. Color purple and use white actors like Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake ….there are way more talented kids than Willlow

    I actually wanna see it. It's just a remake. You dont have to see it. Of course it'll NEVER be like the original. I mean- its THE ORIGINAL. So stop whining.



  12. 12

    NO, I can't get behind it. He's a bullly and an immature jerk. The thought of this is only made worse by the suggestion that the Smith kids are in it. Ick. Nast.

    Re: yumba1
    If it was possible for me to rate you 100 thumbs up I would. You hit the nail right on the head. This is the most disgusting, blatant nepotism I've ever seen in my life. These kids are not talented, and yet all of Hollywood is turning cartwheels to kiss their asses. They've had record contracts handed to them and movies written for them, for no reason other than they're Will Smith's kids. There are a million really talented kids out there who've worked their asses off trying to get into the business, and Will Smith's no-talent spoiled brats are being handed everything on a silver platter. Makes me sick. Give some kids who've EARNED it a shot.

    Its not gonna stop here, Wil Smith will do more remakes with black actors. Willow will next play snow white and the black dwarfs. Hey Will create your own classics I think you have it in you, stop trying to prove whatever it is you are doing…kinda pathetic.

    This remake is going to BOMB…. Someone quick and pull and the plug



  17. 17

    While I am no fan of nepotism, those posting here are acting as though they have amnesia and are unfamiliar with how Jewish people promoted their own in Hollywood. Now Black people are doing the same. It took decades of exclusion for his to happen, and there is such a thing as non-traditional casting.

    Did you also object to Leontyne Price and Kathleen Battle performing at the world's greatest opera houses?



  18. 18

    this will be a bomb,remember the wiz? I herad there is another bomb THIS WEEK END.BIEBER, ITS GETTING BAD REVIEWS…..



  19. 19

    @the Smith Family.. STOP ruining classic movies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  20. 20

    Blechhhhh!



  21. 21

    will smith go away and take your kids with you..this is dumb….annie is a white girl…hey i got a good idea, how about a white guy play matin luther king in a movie, see how that goes over…



  22. 22

    I hope to God he doesn't do this. There's no reason whatsoever that little n-i-glet should be getting her own movie. I'm sick of these rich people buying their way into music and movies when they have zero talent.



  23. 23

    Those smiths are setting a great example. Why bother putting in the effort and developing talent when your parents can just buy a career for you?

    How do you say, nepotism????? This little girl is cute and all, but SHE'S NO ANNIE!!!!!! They're are plenty of red hair, freckled child actresses with no work out there, Willow needs to back off!



  25. 25

    Leave Annie Alone!



  26. 26

    Come on! We've already had one Annie movie and the broadway show ran for about 120 years. How many times can people stomach the same songs?

    Re: stacy03 – They are not the majority in the arts you mentioned but the loudest that's the only way they can be heard.-Look at their comedians they are the most vulgar and foulmouthed, Hip Hop is NOT music is a Pseudo music based in samples of other artists songs and is not singing anyway and as actors the only way the win awards is in the role of prostitutes, drug dealers, pimps and others low life roles.

    Re: stacy03

    I'm not a Willow Smith fan but you are a fucking moron.



  29. 29

    I can't believe this is serious!! they are going to ruin a classic!!! I hope he really is a fan of musicals and agree that the idea is totally stupid



  30. 30

    I used to have a lot of respect to Will but lately I hate him so much specially because of this! and willow you can't sing or are you going to use autotune?



  31. 31

    Re: DirtyCash – hahaha snow white lol you should stop saying that kind of things you are giving them ideas!



  32. 32

    I agree with everyone here this a very very bad mistake. god help us all if this is made.



  33. 33

    And on other news, Lee Daniels is apparently in talks to direct Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman in the new remake of "The Color Purple". For God Sake do not ruin "Annie"!! I agree with the woman who said these kids are being pimped, I used to like Willow Smith, I thought she was a cute little girl with a cute catchy little song but now its just sad cause its not even her fault. I don't know the family but it seems like Will is like "You're going to be a star. I don't care if you don't want to"

    Murphy is a good choice; Smith isnt.
