It took us a second to adjust to the idea, but the more and more we think about it….this MAY have some potential.
The actor, and his company Overbrook Entertainment, are developing the project with Sony, and have even reached out to Jay-Z, and have asked him to create original music for the flick, which is thought at this point to be a contemporary adaptation.
However, there's no word yet on whether or not it will feature any of the musical's original songs.
Definitely a ballsy move to tamper with such a well-known, and much-loved classic, but we think that updating the story to modern times and focusing on the recession - maybe as a mirror to The Great Depression - with an updated sound could actually work! And work WELL!
We just hope that little Willow has the acting chops to carry such a huge story! People are not going to be happy if this flops!
What do U think?? Do U want to see an updated Annie??
