Movie News: Jamie Foxx in talks to join Quvenzhané Wallis in Annie
Right around Oscar season, it was announced that Quvenzhané Wallis would star in the new remake of Annie. Well according to Heat Vision, Jamie Foxx is in talks to play Benjamin Stacks, who will be a variation of the Daddy Warbucks, who is the wealthy man who adopts Annie if you don’t know the story. Of course, the name is a more modern updated version of the character and sounds a bit cheesy if you ask me. That being said, Annie will be produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z, whom I love and I tend to trust them when it comes this stuff.
Jamie Foxx I think would fit the role really well with his personality and acting type. He’s already a fan favorite of Sony and is currently shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Sony is eyeing a late fall production start for an anticipated 2014 release.
