Sources close to Byrne say the talks are early on in the process but that both sides have begun discussions for Byrne to join the film. Pic currently stars Quvenzhane Wallis, Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx, with Will Gluck directing.
Based on the Broadway musical, pic will be set in modern times and follow the adventures of little orphan Annie as she tries to find a family to call her own.
Byrne is also in consideration for a role in “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” but sources say the budget was cut on the film and it may have been hard to finalize a deal if an offer was presented to Byrne. »
