Jay-Z Teams Up With Studio For ‘Annie’ Remake Starring Willow Smith


When Jay-Z sampled “It’s a Hard Knock Life” from the classic Broadway show-turned-movie musical “Annie,” who would have guessed it was simply a sneak preview of bigger things to come? It’s been announced that Jay has teamed up with Overbrook Entertainment, a film production company whose partners include Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz.

 One of the first projects on the Jay-Z/Overbook agenda will, in fact, be remaking “Annie.” After rumors hit the Net about the possibility of the update, Variety confirmed Wednesday (January 26) that Sony will bring the reimagining of the musical about a spirited orphan to the big screen.
