Here’s an early fun look at the upcoming film adaptation via the below footage that was shot of the cast of Annie (including Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Rose Byrne, and Cameron Diaz), performing their version of the song Tomorrow, the closing number, in Harlem, last week.
Sony Pictures’ Annie, the long-in-development remake/reimagining of the Broadway musical, which stars Quvenzhané Wallis as the title character, is set for a December 19, 2014 premiere.
Joining Ms Wallis in the film’s cast are Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, Dorian Missick and Tracie Thoms.
The film has been filming in New York City, under Will Gluck’s direction, based on a script he revised, originally written by Emma Thompson and Aline Brosh McKenna.
Will & Jada Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment, in partnership with Jay-Z (who’ll be working on the soundtrack) are producing.
