Annie

Previously a redhead curly afro-ed white youth in comics, on Broadway and in the original 1982 film, little orphan Annie is about to get a makeover. With Willow Smith in the title role, dad Will Smith as producer and Jay-Z providing the film’s score, movie audiences should be prepared to have their hard knock lives rocked. Annie begins production in New York City in Spring 2013.
