Picture 323 Will Smith to remake Annie starring daughter

The sun will come out tomorrow, especially if your dad is Will Smith.


The former Fresh Prince is teaming up with Jay-Z and Sony to remake the musical “Annie” starring Smith’s daughter, Willow. The announcement by Smith’s production company Overbrook Entertainment confirmed the remake of the 1982 film. Jay-Z is credited with working on Willow’s pop hit “Whip My Hair”. Ironically, Jay-Z’s 1999 hit track “Hard Knock Life” featured a sampling from “Annie”

“Annie” would be the second remake Smith’s catered for one of his children, following son Jaden’s starring role in 2010′s “Karate Kid” remake. Co-starring Jackie Chan and Tajiri P. Henson, “Karate Kid” grossed over $176 million.

Based on the hit stage musical, “Annie” starred unknown Aileen Quinn as the adorable red headed orphan and featured Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks.
