Sandra Bullock was offered a role in the planned remake of Annie back in March, but she turned it down. Now she’s had a change of heart and THR reports that is in talks to join the musical, alongside Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx.
She would play Miss Hannigan, the unpleasant, scheming woman who runs the orphanage that Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) lives in before being taken in by Daddy Warbucks (Jamie Foxx). Carol Burnett played Miss Hannigan in the 1982 films version of Annie.
Will Gluck is set to direct the movie from a screenplay that he is currently rewriting. Emma Thompson wrote the original draft, which was rewritten by Aline Brosh McKenna.
