This is exciting.
Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) is not only up for a Best Actress Oscar tonight, but it has been confirmed that she will headline a new Annie reboot where she will star in the title role. The film has been planned for a holiday 2014 release so probably November or December. The President of Production at Columbia commented on Wallis' talent stating her "amazing range, not only as an actress but as a singer and dancer, and we can't wait for audiences to further discover her."
Annie will be directed by Will Gluck (Easy A) and produced by James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Will Smith through Overbrook Entertainment and also Jay-Z, Jay Brown, and Ty Ty through Marcy Media.
[UPDATE] Annie has been given a Christmas release, so we will have it on December 25, 2014.
