On last night’s fall season finale episode of “Dancing With the Stars,” Quvenzhané Wallis gave America a sneak peek at what to expect in theaters, from the upcoming remake/reimagining of the Broadway musical “Annie,” which she stars in, along with Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne, Cameron Diaz, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, Dorian Missick and Tracie Thoms.
Wallis and company performed live, to the film’s classic “It’s a Hard Knock Life” tune. Watch it all unfold below.
The Sony Pictures project is set for a December 19, 2014 release.
Filmed in New York City, under Will Gluck’s direction, the project hails from Will & Jada Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment, in partnership with Jay-Z (who’s also working on the soundtrack). Gluck revised the script which was originally written by Emma Thompson and Aline Brosh McKenna.
