I have never, ever been a fan of the idea of remaking the 1972 original Annie film. Why is it necessary? WHY? In particular, why do we need to bring it into “modern times” and turn it into absolute shit as it’s clear is what’s happening here? Cameron Diaz‘s casting as Miss Hannigan – played so brilliantly by Carol Burnett in the original – was the final straw for me, and now that the first pictures of her “in costume” for the role have emerged, I’ve proven my point… to myself.
That’s right, that photo above isn’t some random selfie Cameron took during her Rihanna phase or whatever -that’s actually her as Miss Hannigan, which leads me to ask the question… What the everloving fuck? She posted the picture on her shiny new Twitter account with the following caption:
“I want you to meet someone. Her name is Ms.Hannigan. She ain’t nice and she ain’t pretty.”
Well, that’s the truth. Also, now she’s a Ms.? WHAT? This movie is so wrong in every single way. The only thing remotely good about it is Quvenzhané Wallis in the lead role, and I have the feeling that Will Smith will find a way to ruin even that. This looks like a DISASTER.
