Will Smith wants his Men In Black boss to write Annie for his daughter, Willow. No, Rip Torn won’t be adapting the famous musical (though that would be awesome). Men In Black III‘s Emma Thompson is his first pick to write the film that he’s producing with Jay-Z. Thompson is well-suited for this material because she’s British.

Actually, she’s well-suited because of her prior scripting work. She wrote Sense and Sensibility as well as the Nanny McPhee films. That paints an awesome visual of Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel and Freeway sitting around watching Sense and Sensibility together. All really quiet and really engrossed. (Vulture)
