Quvenzhané Wallis is your new ANNIE

1 min read

Briefly: New millenium, less movie ideas, more reboots.  Musicals good, remixes and dubstep better. Annie optioned, Jay-Z,James Lassiter, Will and Jada Smith to produce. Will “Easy A” Gluck to direct. Actress found. And a talented one at that.

Quvenzhané Wallis will be handling the melodies of the sole ginger child that the world actually loves. The long-running comic strip, 1977 Broadway musical and 1982 movie may have faded into obscurity over recent decades, but it’s coming back with an audio vengeance.

While the movie was originally going to be a vehicle for Smith daughter Willow, sanity prevailed when people realized that people would rather cork their orifices shut and explode themselves with a fart than listen to her sing again. Quvenzhané Wallis has the gig now, as the 9 year old actress was in Hollywood last night. Y’know, being the youngest ever thespian ever nominated for an Academy Award and all that.

You can see the full press release regarding this on Coming Soon, which reads like a CV from someone desperate to get a job. People skills!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
