Finally, months after the first announcement, we get a glimpse of some "Annie" related goodness.
Calling all musical theater fans. Not only is the Annie movie officially coming to a screen near you soon, there’s also a trailer and everything. Just a heads up: there are two kinds of people – those who get emotional during Annie and those, who don’t have hearts. With that said, let Quvenzhane Wallis melt your heart in just the short time of the trailer.
A thirty-second teaser trailer and preliminary movie poster were released Wednesday, showing Wallis in the title role, as well as Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks and Cameron Diaz as the villainous Mrs Hannigan. The new clip, released by Entertainment Tonight, looks ever so slightly campy, what with Cameron Diaz’s strangely accented line “You think you’re better than me?” and the iconic Tomorrow, sung by Wallis, dramatically playing in the background. It doesn’t look like the problem is with any of the actors though – Annie was just never meant to be condensed into a trailer.

Cameron Diaz will be playing Miss Hannigan in a new film of the Broadway musical 'Annie'. Sandra Bullock has previously been linked to the role but Sony confirmed Diaz would be starring yesterday (26th June 2013).
Sony have confirmed Cameron Diaz will be starring in Will Smith and Jay Z's musical re-envisioning of the hit Broadway musical Annie. Diaz has landed the role of Miss Hannigan, the cruel manager of the orphanage Annie initially lives in. Sandra Bullock was previously linked to the role and was involved in talks with Annie producers. However, it has been confirmed Diaz has the part.
Annie, initially a comic strip, was turned into a musical, opened on Broadway in 1977. The musical was turned into a film just five years later (1982). Carol Burnett played Miss Hannigan in this version, although her performance was slated by critics (as was the film in general which is still considered one of the worst in film history).

Quvenzhane Wallis will take on the starring role in the upcoming remake of the musical Annie.
Quvenzhane Wallis will follow-up her Oscar nominated role in Beasts of the Southern Wild by taking on the lead role in the remake of the classic musical Annie, Sony Pictures Entertainment announced yesterday morning (Feb 24).
The young actress wowed audiences with her award-worthy performance as Hushpuppy in the Benh Zeitlin fantasy drama, and now the actress is reaping the benefits of her mature performance by signing up to her second post-BotSW role. Wallis will also star alongside Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender in the upcoming Twelve Years a Slave, which follows the story of a New York man kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South in the early 1800's.
Will Gluck, who directed Friends With Benefits, is already attached to directed the remake, which is being financed by Will Smith, Jay Z, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter and Tyran Smith. Will and Jada's daughter Willow Smith was initially rumoured to be taking on the lead role, but it seems the appeal of having an Oscar nominee star in the film was too much for Will, who will be appearing alongside his son Jaden in the upcoming After Earth.
