This is a pretty fun story. Jay-Z and Will Smith are co-producing an Annie remake with Quvenzhané Wallis. While the Annie character stays intact (we presume), figures like Daddy Warbucks get played by Jamie Foxx and get “urban” names like Benjamin Stacks. Which could very well have been why Sandra Bullock declined the offer the first time around.
But it’s become clear that her character, originally “Miss Hannigan,” won’t be getting a bigger, blacker name like Felicia S. Tamer or something, and maybe she can just be herself and stick to the character crafted in the beloved musical.
Can she get a “fuck you?”
