Whomp, whomp.

Can't say that we blame the guy. He's pretty busy these days.

Sony Pictures has decided to take Ryan Murphy off their list of potentials to direct Willow Smith in the remake of Annie. Though the Glee creator was Will Smith's top pick for the job, talks "broke off" and so, Ryan is no longer in the running for the project.

They didn't say so, but we imagine scheduling was one of the primary problems. Seriously, how is this guy suppose to direct a movie when he is writing not one, but two TV shows! He's an amazing dude, but he's not Superman.

Focus on the stuff you've already got on, Ryan. Leave someone else to bring a new version of Hard-Knock Life to 2011.

    Ryan murphy, just by looking at him, you can tell he probably likes some weird shit in bed. He looks scary, bet he is into all sorts of weird fetishes.

    Maybe he didn't want to continue to pollute the world with more shit from no talents?
    Glee is awful, Annie with Willow Smith will be awful and he's not willing to take the heat for the shit-storm that horrible movie with create. =D

    OK. Enough is enough. There is waaaaay too much Jaden and Willow in the world right now. They have little to no talent… all they have on their side is an unlimited amount of money and a powerful father. How nice. At least Paris Hilton waited til she was legal to start doing crap movies and bad music because "she could".

    oh great who gave the Smith's the permission to totally fucking destroy a classic? the original annie was performed by professionally trained artists who could actually act and sing, and had REAL talent. what a shame. enough remakes…..no real talent left-cop out and do remakes….fuckin sux

    Maybe it will be as bad and ill-conceived as the movie version of The Wiz - because the Smith kid is just not Annie. In any way.

    I think the more important question is "Why the fuck is this movie being made with Willow Smith?"
