We all know it can be a hard knock life and that the sun will come out tomorrow but we don’t have to wait any longer for the first official trailer for the highly anticipated remake of the musical Annie! See the breakout 10-year-old star as she navigates mean ol’ Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) while starting a new friendship with billionaire Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx).
It may not be the hard-knock life for Oscar-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis, but the 10-year-old looked adorable on set as she takes on the iconic role of Annie in the upcoming remake. Check out Wallis’ Annie style and find out about the serious A-list names already attached to the reboot.
The most popular satirical site on the internet, The Onion, is catching heat after they sent out a tweet calling 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis the c-word.
If you haven’t seen Quvenzhané Wallis in Beasts of the Southern Wild, you’ve missed something truly extraordinary. At nine years old she’s the youngest actress to ever be nominated for an Academy Award (the youngest actor, Jackie Cooper, was 9 years old when he was nominated in 1931) and she completely deserves it.
Her performance has also landed her role most little girls would kill for: Annie. Columbia Pictures is planning an Annie reboot for a release in 2014, and they want Quvenzhané for the lead role.
