Quvenzhane Wallis To Replace Willow Smith In Annie Remake???!

Quvenzhane Wallis is on a roll!!!

Not only is the 9-year-old the youngest-ever Best Actress Oscar nominee, but she is now in talks to star in the remake of Annie.

Doesn't sound like a hard-knock life to us!

While producers Will Smith, Jay-Z, and Jada Pinkett-Smith have yet to make any absolute casting decisions, it is a BIG possibility that Quzanhane could be replacing Willow Smith after the Hollywood royal decided she would rather "just be 12" following her tour for Whip My Hair.

Well, the Beasts of the Southern Wild star definitely has the acting chops for it!

Looks like for Quvenzhane, the sun WILL come out tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow!

Willow Smith Has Been 'Hard KNOCK Lifed' Out Of Annie Remake!

Leaping lizards!!!

The remake of Annie is really happening, but maybe not as we had originally envisioned it.

Unfortunately, while we wanted to see Annie whip her hair back and forth, Willow Smith — who was originally set to star in the Sony adaptation— is no longer attached to the project.

However, the flick will still have PLENTY of star power with the help of producers Jay-Z, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Will Smith. It is also now set to be directed by Easy A and Friends With Benefits filmmaker Will Gluck

As they say, the show must go on!

Who would YOU like to see play little orphan Annie?!

Willow Smith Covers Adele's Skyfall

| Filed under: Music MinuteYouTubeAdeleWillow Smith

Such a powerful voice for such a little girl!

Willow Smith took a stab at Adele's Bond theme, Skyfall, and uploaded it to YouTube for all her fans to enjoy for freeeeee!

She's not quite on par with the British sensation yet, but we believe that she'll get there someday.

Remember, she's only 11 years old!

We're impressed and can't wait to see what she does with Tomorrow as Little Orphan Annie in the upcoming remake her dad is producing.

When she's not whipping her hair back and forth, she's one hell of a pianist too!

She is AH-Mazing!

The tiny star and big bro Jaden Smith, just released this spectacular music video for DJ AcE's beat heavy dance track Find You Somewhere!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above)!!

We LOVE this song!

This video should make Will Smith soupa proud of his little mini-mees — AND his wifey, Jada Pinkett Smith, who directed it!

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.

Our minds have been thoroughly, wonderfully BLOWN!!

GET THIS:

Sony pictures is re-creating the iconic musical Annie produced by Will Smith, with script written by British actress Emma Thompson, starring Willow Smith as little orphan Annie!

The adaptation is already shaping up to be a movie-musical for the ages!

BUT NOW, Rap's king will momentarily descend from his throne to construct Annie's entire musical score!

SCORE!

Jay-Z does have some
