Will Smith is in talks with Emma Thompson to write a film adaptation of Annie as a starring vehicle for his daughter, Willow Smith. Vulture adds, “No word on whether Thompson will also write herself into a role as the orphanage director who loves booze almost as much as she hates children, but here’s hoping.” Here’s more on the project and Jay-Z’s involvement. He told THR: “We’re developing a true superstar in Willow.”
