Wow! It is a GOOD day to be Quvenzhane Wallis!
The adorable nine-year-old actress is not only up for "Best Actress" at the 2013 Oscars this evening, but she has also been officially CONFIRMED for the title role in the upcoming remake of Annie, set to be directed by Will Gluck, with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, Ty Ty Smith, Jay Brown, and of course, Jay-Z serving as the producers!
As we've already reported,
Quvenzhane Wallis is on a roll!!!
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!

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

Such a powerful voice for such a little girl!
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!
Our first thought after watching this video: How the EFF is Willow Smith 11-years-old???
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!

We LOVE this song!
The Willow Smith starring dream concoction, Annie, finally has a start date!
Our minds have been thoroughly, wonderfully BLOWN!!
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!
Jay-Z does have some
