Cameron Diaz will play Miss Hannigan in the new Annie movie


Cameron-DiazCameron Diaz has signed on to play Miss Hannigan in Sony’s new version of Annie. Sandra Bullock was up for the role of the nasty head of the orphanage Annie goes to, but she had to drop out.

Will Smith and Jay-Z are producing.

Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) is playing Annie while Jamie Foxx is playing Benjamin Stacks (the updated version of Daddy Warbucks).

Will Gluck is directing the film.

I honestly do not know which way this new film will go. It could either be huge or an absolute mess.

What are your thoughts on the project? Should there be a new version of the film?
