Willow Smith might play Annie in a possible remake of the classic Broadway musical.
Actor Will Smith is working on a possible deal to bring the play back to life as a big screen star vehicle for his daughter. Will would be the producer of the new movie and rapper Jay-Z is in negotiations to do the music.
Jay-Z, who worked with Willow previously on her awesome song “Whip My Hair,” is no stranger to the musical. He sampled the chorus of “It’s A Hard Knock Life” for his hip-hop version “Hard Knock Life.”
Nothing is finalized yet but with the success of Will and Jaden Smith’s remake of The Karate Kid, that should make the deal go through a lot quicker.
