Will Smith’s ‘Annie’ Remake Development Officially Announced; Jay-Z Definitely on Board

Post  Guest on Sun Jan 15, 2012 1:29 am




Late last week we heard that Will Smith might be developing a remake of Annie at Columbia/Sony, the idea being to create a star vehicle for his daughter Willow Smith. At the time there was a rumor that Jay-Z would be involved with the music for the film, just as he was in the production of Willow Smith’s hit single ‘Whip My Hair.’ Now Mr. Smith’s company has officially announced the remake and partnership with Jay-Z. All the details are after the break.

This is the first development from a partnership between Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment and Jay-Z, with the intent “to develop and produce major motion pictures.” Plural. All involved have already worked on the hit Broadway musical Fela!, and there’s the previously mentioned business arrangement between Willow Smith and Jay-Z’s label. So is this the second step in creating a Smith Family entertainment juggernaut, where the first step was the remake of The Karate Kid? Looks like it.


Was also announced on the Jonathan Ross program this evening afro

Not sure whether this will go down very well in certain circles, will be worth a look when it comes out imo.

I can't see anything wrong with that remake tbf, since poverty and kids homes were full of both black and white people at that time in America!

If you are going to remake classics like Oliver, Billy Elliot, Great Expectations etc, then they should stick to that period, so as to be as authentic as to that time.

Haven't seen that one.

I'm glad that they are doing a cinema remake of the theatre show 'War Horse'

I look forward to seeing that again on the big screen, at the theatre show half of it was in German with no subtitles!
