Quvenzhané Wallis is attached to star as the orphan Annie, with Cameron Diaz portraying Agatha Hannigan, the mean-spirited nun who runs the orphanage Annie was raised in, before Daddy Warbucks (Jamie Foxx) takes her in. Sandra Bullock was originally in talks to play Agatha Hannigan before negotiations fell through last month.
Will Gluck is directing from a screenplay he is currently rewriting, which was originally written by Aline Brosh McKenna and Emma Thompson. Overbrook Entertainment's Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and James Lassiter are producing alongside Marcy Media's Jay-z and Tyran Smith. It isn't known when production will begin.
