Quvenzhane Wallis Stars In Annie Remake

Quvenzhane Wallis the young Oscar nominated star of Beasts Of the Southern Wild  is set to star as Annie in the forthcoming remake of the 1982 musical classic.

The film is set for release in 2014 and is based on the original stage production about a young orphan girl trying to find her family. Will and Jade Pinkett Smith are producing the project alongside multi-talented music mogul Jay-Z. Will Smith’s daughter Willow had originally be groomed to star, but drooped out of the project having turned 12 and seemingly outgrown the role.
