Hard to believe Willow Smith would know anything about a “Hard Knock Life.” Dad Will Smith is one of the biggest stars on the planet, mom Jada Pinkett Smith gave her some smokin’ hot genes, and she already has a hit single (and a stylist). So let’s hope the girl can at least act like a bummed-out orphan – she’s starring in a remake of “Annie” being prepped by Will Smith and Jay Z. Here’s the details, plus who else should star in this promising remake.
Jay-Z would be collaborating on the music (remember his “Hard Knock Life” riff years ago?), and Smith’s Overbrook will produce.
Here’s just a few our dream cast recommendations:
Daddy Warbucks – Will Smith (duh)
Miss Hannigan – Jane Lynch
Grace Farrell – Jada Pinkett Smith (duh again)
Rooster Hannigan – Paul Rudd
Lily St. Regis – Jennifer Hudson
One of the boys who gets beat up by Annie — Jaden Smith
