She's their #1 choice!
As we all very well know, Will Smith and Jay-Z are planning on remaking the classic movie musical Annie for a new generation with Will's daughter Willow poised for the lead. It's been 30 years since John Huston wrote the original and Will and Jay reportedly want only the best to do his work justice.
That's why the duo are in negotiations with Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress Emma Thompson to re-adapt the screenplay!
Nice choice! We love her movies and we think she has the perfect sensibility for the task! She'd be a fool not to sign up! Tweens are going to eat this up!
