Annie has been filming for a while now, and while there have been a few set-pics that have been floating around, we haven’t seen much of Cameron Diaz in the movie. Now the actress herself has tweeted an image of herself all made up for the role, along with the message, ‘Her name is Ms.Hannigan. She ain’t nice and she ain’t pretty. #Annie’
Agath Hannigan runs the orphanage that house lil’ Annie at the start of the film. She’s a drunk who hates children and makes the kids’ lives hell.
The music for this new version has been updated by Will Smith and Jay-Z score, although it’s not known yet quite how contemporary the tunes will become and whether we’ll get a hip-hop version of Tomorrow. The plot remains the same though, with orphan Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) having a hard-luck life in the foul orphanage run by Miss Hannigan (Diaz). She’s then taken in by the filthy rich Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx), who initially doesn’t really want her, but soon falls for the plucky youngster’s charms.
Will Gluck is directing, with as Christmas 2014 release set.
