Change of plans!
The film, via Sony Pictures, just got a director - Will Gluck, director of Friends With Benefits and Easy A.
When initial plans were made for the film, Willow was 9, the perfect age to play Annie. Now, however, she has outgrown the role. Aw, they grow up so fast!
Jay released this statement about the project:
“For Marcy Media’s first foray into film, we couldn’t ask for better partners and mentors than Overbrook Entertainment. We are excited to work with Will Gluck and Sony Pictures Entertainment. My well-known affinity for the classic ‘Hard Knock Life’ makes Annie a natural vehicle to lead us into the world of the cinema.”
The film is set to release in Fall 2014.
Who do you want to see play Annie?
