Willow Smith to star in Annie reboot

Following in her famous father’s footsteps, it appears Willow Smith is going back to starring in movies after launching a successful music career. The child of one of Hollywood’s most talented families, she is set to appear as the lead in an upcoming reboot of the classic musical film Annie. The “Whip My Hair” singer isn’t the only interesting new twist to this film, as rapper Jay-Z has reportedly signed on to compose. Rounding out the star-studded team is Men In Black 3‘s Emma Thompson, who is responsible for writing the script, and Smith’s father, Will Smith, who will produce. With the talented young Willow in the lead role, and her already proven skills both with dance and vocals, this reboot is sure to bring a beloved classic back to life. Production is expected to start in the spring. ~Morgan Bates

    Here’s a plot twist for this terrible idea.

    Hair whipping, spoiled (ironically) orphan is adopted into an average, minimum wage family where she must learn to not be so goddamn annoying.

    Autotune your way through that, Willow.

    Sounds like it’s going to be the worst box office bomb ever.

    nepotism much?

    and yes, this sounds almost as bad as her singing, but I suspect it will do well at the box-office.

    Airheads candy brand gifted celebrities with every variety of airheads available and a Special Edition Atari Flashback 4 with 76 built in games. We were especially intrigued by the white airheads mystery flavor. Duane Reade put together a beauty pack with Impress nails, a Goody Tangle Fix Brush, Heritage Collection Goody brush, and a Goody Quick Style brush and last, but not least, a Supersolano hair dryer.
