Will Smith To Remake Annie
Will Smith is no stranger to desecrating cinematic relics from the past, having widdled all over The Karate Kid last year, so we probably shouldn’t be surprised that according to Variety he’s gearing up for remake of Annie with his daughter Willow in the title role and Jay-Z on music duty.
Yup, it seems nepotism is alive and well in Hollywood. It won’t be the first time Willow’s been on screen having been in I Am Legend with daddy in 2007 and had a hit single called Whip My Hair.
Jay-Z sampled Hard Knock Life in 1998 so it won’t come as much of a surprise that he’s working on the music for the film but there’s no official line on whether the remake will feature reworkings of original music or a completely new soundtrack.
