The Willow Smith starring dream concoction, Annie, finally has a start date!
As reported earlier, Will Smith is set to produce the reboot of the classic, featuring his youngest child in the revamped titular role.
THEN, if our minds were discombobulated enough, Big Willy has Jay-Z set to compose the new Annie along with MIB co-star Emma Thompson writing the flick.
Thompson states the new Annie will start production in the spring in New York let's just say she is ECSTATIC about the project.
The actress says the following on the reboot:
I've been writing the script for nearly three years - it's exciting.
Jay-Z has already started working on the music. We'll be having dinner. We will start shooting in the spring in New York.
Is there anyway we could sit in on that meeting too???
