I don’t mind me a bit of Sandy Bullock – her movies are inoffensive enough and she seems like a pretty sweet lady and a decent actress. Plus, her baby, Louis, is absolutely adorable. Not sure why that gives her added credibility, but it does, so let’s just go with it. In any case, she’s got an exciting new role coming down the pipe, maybe: Miss Hannigan in Sony’s Annie remake.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Sandra Bullock is in early talks to join Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis in Annie, the update of the classic comic strip-turned-musical that Sony is making with producers Will Smith and Jay-Z.
Bullock would play Miss Hannigan, the mean lady who runs the orphanage inhabited by Annie (Wallis) and her friends. (Foxx will play a modern incarnation of Daddy Warbucks, a billionaire named Benjamin Stacks.)
But that is only if a deal is made. Bullock and the studio were in talks in March, but the actress ultimately passed at the time. Now the two sides are back at the table.
I’m sort of in support of this, but a little confused about the casting of this movie all-around. I love little Q, so I’m in on that front, but I’ve never really liked Jamie Foxx very much, to be honest. Also, the 1982 version is so classic so I’m not really sure why we need a remake. Can’t people leave well enough alone?
