Here’s the new clip from the upcoming remake/reimagining of the Broadway musical “Annie,” which stars Quvenzhané Wallis as the title character, with Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne, Cameron Diaz, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, Dorian Missick and Tracie Thoms joining her in front of the camera.
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.
Check out Ms Wallis singing a new song written for the film by singer Sia. Not quite “It’s The Hard Knock Life,” or “Tomorrow,” as you might expect.
Said director Gluck about the clip: “Annie sings this song after she realizes that she’s got a good thing going with Jamie Foxx’s character.”
