Annie Review If a studio were looking for something to remake/update, they could do worse than Annie. It only makes sense that an early 80s film based on a stage musical that takes place in the 30s - which itself was based on a comic strip that began in the 19th century - would be ripe for hauling into the new millennia. Some could argue that Annie's trademark red hair and the Depression Era setting were part of the original's charm, but I figure as long as the story and music still resonate what's the harm in trying? Well, try they did. And fumble they did.

Yesterday I had the chance to sit down and talk to Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) and Academy Award® winnerJamie Foxx about their upcoming film and new take on "Annie."In the film Wallis stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz).
