I am SO excited about this remake! It’s a remake of the movie ‘Annie,’ starring Academy Award nominee Quvenzhane Wallis (who looks absolutely adorable in this role). Jamie Foxx is the Daddy Warbucks character, but in this version, his character is named Benjamin Stacks. (Stacks: get it? LOVE it- LOL). Cameron Diaz is a very glamorous Miss Hannigan, and it looks like she has a lot of fun with this role. RELATED: Here’s our first look at the ‘Annie’ reboot!
It’s time to introduce a new generation of kids to Orphan Annie! Here’s Academy Award nominee Quvenzhane Wallis in the reboot of ‘Annie.’ The ‘Annie’ reboot boasts quite a cast, including Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. This version of ‘Annie’ has definitely been updated for the 21st century. Jamie is ambitious politician Benjamin Stacks, who first becomes interested in Annie to help his image for his campaign.
Cameron looks like she’ll be HILARIOUS as Miss Hannigan. Yet the same great songs are there. While Jamie’s Benjamin Stacks may start out as an opportunistic politician, he doesn’t seem to stay that way. ‘Annie’ will be released this Christmas, which I think is perfect timing! Will you be checking out this new version of ‘Annie’? I will!
There’s nothing we love like a child star with real talent. And that can certainly be said of ten-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, who shot to fame after her starring role as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild earned her the honor of being the youngest actress to ever receive an Academy Award nomination.
But if you thought the genius she poured into Hushpuppy was a one-off, you thought wrong. The talented actress is now starring in the upcoming film remake of 1977’s Annie. She was spotted filming a scene yesterday in New York City. We can’t wait to see what else this shining star’s future has in store for her!
