Cameron Diaz has joined the new adaptation of Annie as Miss Hannigan. The role was originally offered to Sandra Bullock but she passed on it. Diaz will play the eccentric orphanage owner who gives her orphans, including Annie, a hard knock life.
Whenever I think of Miss Hannigan I think of Carol Burnett, so Diaz certainly has some big shoes to fill with this one.
So far we have Oscar nominee Quevenzhane Wallis set in the title role of Annie and Jamie Foxx set as the Daddy Warbucks character, Benjamin Stacks. Jay-Z and Will Smith are on as producers and Will Gluck is directing. Annie is set to hit theaters on December 25, 2014.
