Child prodigy Willow Smith is set to star in the new adaptation to Annie and wants Brad Pitt as Daddy Warbucks in the film. Brad Pitt is no stranger to adoption but is he willing to star in the re-make?
Access Hollywood asked 10-year-old Willow – star of the upcoming remake – who she wants to play Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks and she’s hoping “the sun will come out tomorrow” on one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
“Brad Pitt!” she told Access at Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” premiere on Monday night in Los Angeles.
As for details on the project, which dad Will Smith is producing with Jay-Z and Sony Pictures, the young star stayed tight-lipped. “We’re just going to have to wait for that! You’re just going to have to wait,” she said.
There’s yet to be confirmation on whether or not this will happen, but with Jay-Z and Will Smith behind this project I’m sure it’s not too far from possible.
