[Movies] Will Gluck to Direct Annie Remake
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.30.2013



Will Gluck will direct the long-rumored re-imagining of Annie. Sony Pictures announced the news today, revealing that they are in talks with Gluck to direct the film which will be produced by James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and Jay-Z. Gluck will rewrite Emma Thompson's screenplay, which sets the musical in the modern day.

Sony Pictures Entertainment has announced this morning that they are in negotiations with Will Gluck to direct a broad-based re-imagining of the classic Broadway musical Annie, it was announced today by Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio.

Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad and production president Hannah Minghella issued a joint statement saying, "After seeing firsthand his work on several films for Sony, including 'Easy A' and 'Friends with Benefits', we're huge fans of Will Gluck. At the helm of 'Annie', he will bring to this film all the charm of the original Broadway production while also appealing to a new generation."

Jay-Z also commented, saying, "For Marcy Media's first foray into film, we couldn't ask for better partners and mentors than Overbrook Entertainment. We are excited to work with Will Gluck and Sony Pictures Entertainment. My well-known affinity for the classic ‘Hard Knock Life' makes 'Annie' a natural vehicle to lead us into the world of the cinema."

Willow Smith was initially attached to the project, but it was revealed in the press release that she has "grown out of the role."
