My, Miss Hannigan, how you have changed. Cameron Diaz tweeted a pic of herself in character for the “Annie” remake rocking big hoops, red lips and long, dark talons. IMHO, she’s a far cry from Carol Burnett’s boozy sultriness and bedraggled hairdo in the original movie and not necessarily in a good way. What do y’all think? [Twitter.com/CameronDiaz]

It’s A Hard Knock Life! See First Pics Of Quvenzhané Wallis Filming “Annie”

The collective squee you heard around the world last February was the casting news that 10-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis is starring in the “Annie” remake being produced by Jay Z and Will and Jada Smith. The pint-sized “Beasts Of The Southern Wild” star is replacing Willow Smith, who aged out of the role — and thank goodness for that, because Quvenzhané is beyond cute. Just look at her riding a CitiBike around Harlem! I’m not saying I’ll ride the subway uptown and lurk around the set hoping to catch a glimpse … but I’m not saying I won’t. [Image via Splash News]

Quvenzhané Wallis May Live A “Hard Knock Life” In “Annie” Remake

Blast it, ”Annie” remake. I didn’t want anything to do with you, and then you have to go and possibly be casting Quvenzhané Wallis as your lead. Stop it. I don’t want to look forward to you.

The casting report is courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, which is careful to note that Wallis is only being considered and that no casting has yet been decided upon. The musical was previously going to star Willow Smith (Jay-Z and Smith’s parents, Will and Jada Pinkett, are three of the producers), but at 12 years old she wouldn’t be the right age by the time the movie starts shooting.

So they need a new spunky, streetwise tyke, and the nine-year-old Wallis might just fit the bill. She turned in one of the best performances of the year in “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and she seems quite spunky in interviews, so I might have to see the movie if she gets cast. Read more…

If Annie Is All Grown Up, That Means We Are Too

I may be over 30, but that doesn’t make me too old to  hold out hope for a Daddy Warbucks style adoption, right? So what if I own the “Annie” commemorative plate series or can still quote dialogue from the film? “First the windows, then the floors … in case I drip.” Even I knew she wasn’t there to clean, but it was so endearing that she wanted to earn her keep. Though she was a poor orphan living in the depression, it seemed only natural to wish I were her. Especially after she becomes rich and gets to live in a mansion with an indoor pool and a turbaned body guard. “A child without courage is like a night without stars.” Words of wisdom from Punjab. I’ve been waiting for Aileen Quinn aka Annie to resurface. See what she looks like now after the jump. Keep reading »

No Movie Is Safe From Becoming A Remake

Lately, we’ve been noticing that no movie from your childhood (or your parents’ for that matter) is safe from being remade. “Annie” is being rebooted with Willow Smith in the lead role and new songs by Jay-Z. Warner Brothers is currently working on a remake of “The Bodyguard,” the Whitney Houston classic. Kate Winslet recently rocked period garb for a reimagining of “Mildred Pierce.” Oh, and did we mention that “Dirty Dancing” is getting the remake treatment, too? Sometimes, remakes are a great idea. Other times—and let’s be honest, usually—we wish filmmakers would leave good enough alone. So, we decided to steal a play from New York Magazine and make an Approval Matrix of all the movie remakes. After the jump, the details on these movies. In the comments, sound off on any movies you think we’ve wrongly categorized. And let us know where you’d place the remakes we didn’t include.

Brad Pitt As Daddy Warbucks?

I was a tad bit concerned when I heard that Will Smith was looking to do a remake of my favorite childhood musical, “Annie,” with his daughter Willow Smith whipping her hair as the iconic orphan. Willow is keeping quiet about the project and when recently asked about it on “Access Hollywood,” demurred, “You’re just going to have to wait.” But there is one detail she let slip. She said that her ideal Daddy Warbucks would be none other than … Brad Pitt. After all, he does have experience with adoption. Keep reading »
