Will Smith’s daughter to star in ‘Annie’ remake
Ten-year-old Willow Smith is set to play the title role in “Annie.”
The film is being developed by Overbrook Entertainment, which the Smiths co-own, along with Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Sony Pictures.
Last year, 12-year-old Jaden Smith starred in a remake of “The Karate Kid,” which raked in $343 million worldwide.
Sony’s Columbia Pictures first brought “Annie” to theaters in 1982.
The movie was based on the Broadway musical in which a redheaded orphan’s life is transformed when she goes to live with the wealthy industrialist, Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks.
