It looks like the sun is about to come out for Will Smith and his daughter Willow Smith. She’s only 9 and became an overnight sensation with her song ‘Whip My Hair‘ a few months ago. Well it looks like Will wants to expand little Willow’s career and get her on the big screen in a remake of ‘Annie.’ Not only would she be the child star in this 80′s remake, she’d be staring along side her father.
According to Variety, Smith is in discussions with Sony about potentially remaking the 1982 movie musical “Annie” with Willow starring as the adorable singing orphan. Few details are available about the project, which is in the early development stages, but the magazine reports that Jay-Z — who signed the preteen “Whip My Hair” singer to his Roc Nation label last year — is in talks to work on music for the film.
Jay-Z doing the music? Wow, this is sounding amazing. He did do the song Hard Knock Life back in the day that featured music from the original Annie soundtrack. I think he’d be perfect for the job.
