Willow Smith Rumored to Reprise Annie

by at . Comments

Can you imagine Willow Smith in the role of little orphan Annie? You might not need to imagine it in the near future.

This possibility is inching close to reality, as Variety reports that Will Smith is exploring a potential remake of the iconic musical, hoping to bring it to the big screen with his daughter in the title role.

  • Annie

The elder Smith found success making a similar reboot with his son and The Karate Kid. A sequel starring Jaden Smith is likely on the way.

Insiders say Jay-Z, who collaborated with Willow on "Whip My Hair," is in talks to work on the movie's soundtrack. But the real question is this: might Will Smith shave his head and take on the part of Daddy Warbucks?

I totally agree with you keven. "Obama" thats a pretty racist shity thing to say! Fuck It does not matter what race you are it matters if you can act!

Yes, Annie typically has red hair and freckles, but Annie is also confident, and sassy, which willow could pull off perfectly. So i really couldn't care less if she fits the part physically. I bet Willow could bring an interesting twist to the role of Annie. And "Obama", keep your racist thoughts to yourself please. We live in the 21st century, you need to move on.

How about concentrating on an education? Bad idea to make celebs out of children. Screwed up priorities.

Its kinda sad that hollywood has run out of ideas so they remake everything... What's gonna happen when everything is redone? A 3rd version? But so far everything will smith & family have done have been really good so I'm interested in seeing what their next projects will be like.
