Will Emma Thompson Adopt Adapt Annie For Will Smith?

| Filed under: Film FlickersWill Smith


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!

    You're a fucktard Mario! Eat shit and die bitch!
    APOLOGIZE PEREZ! Here is your original post, cowardly edited after MJ DIED!
    Here's what perez really felt when he heard the news:
    We knew something like this would happen!!
    Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!! Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!!
    His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!… Read More
    We are dubious!!
    Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in '95 when he "collapsed" at rehearsal! He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!! Either he's lying or making himself sick, but we're curious to see if he's able to go on!!! Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!

    Ehm what the fuck? Why would they remake Annie? If anything the 'new generation' should just see the original. And will smith needs to stop trying too hard and shoving his daughter down our throats. It's getting ridiculous.

    Whip my hair was okay, but it's all she's known for. I doubt her career will span further than that…

    There is no point in ruining a classic with that fugly little girl.

    it will be as bad as jacksons oz

    Poor Emma. She must be desperate for money. That kid has no talent

    Fine with the whole character of a little white girl with bright red hair and frecles being replaced with a little black girl, that was inevitable and already stupid and boring, but really does the little black girl have to be the butt ugly talentless Willow, pimped out by her disgusting "parents"/ managers. sick. just pathetic. what a sorry state we live in when characters have to be erased for equality. we're all equal BUT different. We are not all the same. DEAL.

    They already did an Annie remake a few years ago. I love Will Smith but why does he insist his kids do remakesorf classic movies?

    Will Smith buying a great screenwriter for something for his son to star in
    reminds me of
    the rich parents buying all of their daughter's boxes of girl scout cookies so their kid will always be considered the best at everything they do
    NEITHER SITS WELL WITH ME…for obvious reasons
    you don't buy your kids a "perfect" life
    you don't buy your kids strong character
    you don't buy your kids morals
    you don't buy your kids kindness, empathy, passion, intelligence, self-sufficiency,

    Idea: find a NEW movie to make instead of destroying an old one. I guess coming up with something new isn't a good idea for Hollywood, and definitely not something Will Smith is interested in.

    Will Smith buying the best screenwriters for a project for his son reminds me of the rich parents who buy all of their daughters boxes of girl scout cookies!!

    you can not BUY your child morals, ethics, intelligence, compassion, empathy, self-sufficience, true friends, the respect of others, respect for others, the satisfaction of team work, the valuable lessons learned from losing sometimes, patience, satisfaction in setting and achieving your own goals, the value of the first dollar you ever made, honor, pride, patriotism, self control, insight, honest criticism/help from others so you can improve something, real character building and not short-cutting your way through life….
    and on and on…………and on
    you can probably add a lot more
    to me, he is teaching his child all the wrong things with this
    that with money-to hell with everyone else-do what you want-you can afford to!!
    you can buy anyone/anything- the rules/what applies to everyone else in the world, does not apply to you
    your money makes you special and different
    do you would think that Oprah would have been Oprah had she been handed everything
    I think not!

    Illuminati sell outs can do whatever they want as long as it suits an evil agenda.

    can we get the smith children to remake every decent movie from the past. i won't be happy until they do. can you see willow as princess lea. ugh.

  15. 15

    Love Emma Thompson both as an actress and Director.

    Saw Annie at the original (for LA) play at the old Shubert theater.

    Will not see this movie even if you gave me a full price ticket and all the buttered popcorn I could eat - sorry.

    Re: Big Black Dick – is this an MJ post? no, so go and talk about what happened two years ago somewhere else, now I will complain about this story….. well I can't believe this project is really happening!!! we don't want a classic to turn into some R&B hip hop or pop or whatever weird music she does, go make an original musical if you want so bad a musical, but don't ruin a FABULOUS classic

    Re: MarcTennisNJ – I was about to say that EXAXT same thing (except with names).

    Re: HILRAYRe: paulina=dan radcliffe fan #1 – Y'all don't like "The Wiz"?! Wow. I'm not even a Jackson fan, and that movie was one of my favorites! I should go to Movie Stop and look for that tomorrow…

    I am so sick of Will & Jada pushing their untalented kids on us! If the kids have talent let them EARN their spots instead of having something CREATED for them with your ZILLIONS of dollars…this family just ANNOY the hell out of me and I can't stand them…they think they are bigger than crap…same with that ugly then ugly fugly guy JayZ OMG …he has money why does he not do some plastic surgery or something! And his wife OMG she is great but the money they have they buy their way to the top and we all just suck it up!!! Yes its good but we are just little toys in their toyshop!

    They ruined Karate Kid and so now they will ruin Annie with the fugly daughter. Both of the kids do not have photogenic faces and they aren't singers or actors. They are nothing but spoiled little brats that will grow up to be just bigger brats that disrespect everything and anything. If they show that much entitlement now can you imagine what it will be like when they are in their teens??

  23. 23

    Ok, Will Smith is really pushing his talentless kids. First Karate Kid and now this.

  24. 24

    I whip the sun back and forth?

  25. 25

    please don't remake Annie, especially with Willow. how about using someone who understands the concept of being an orphan? well, how about using someone that can act? i am tired of the Will Smith family. especially that Jada Pinkett Smith…why do people when they get money think that it automatically comes with having talent???

    I guess if Rihanna can fake a ginger, then add freckles and so can Willow.
    Them that has, gets.

  27. @v@ says – reply to this


    I want Paul Bettany to play the lead in 'Raisin in the Sun.'

    If Willow wants to be an actress, why not put her in community theater, like REGULAR ten year olds? Guaranteed there are at least 10 different children's theater programs in the LA area that probably do "Annie" every other year. The lack of humility displayed by this family is revolting…
