The first trailer for the remake of Annie has hit the internet.
The movie will star Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz and Quvenzhane Wallis and will take some liberties with the story to modernize it. Missing from the new film is Daddy Warbucks, the man who adopted Annie in the original film. Instead viewers are shown Will Stacks, a rich politician that adopts Annie from a Harlem orphanage to better his political image.
Stacks comes to care for Annine and starts to see her as more than a political tool. The trailer also shows that Annie’s true parents may have potentially been found, which will likely cause conflict for Stacks.
The Annie remake will still be a musical and songs like Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow can be heard in the trailer.
