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.
