Will Smith may put his daughter in an Annie remake

As part of his plan to remake all of pop culture in his image, Will Smith has begun prepping to update the musical Annie as a vehicle for Daddy’s little X-chromosome edition Willow, who’s been preparing her whole life to play the singing wind-up plaything for a rich man. The film is only in the planning stages, but Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” collaborator Jay-Z is reportedly already in talks to work on the music, a business decision seemingly based entirely on the song “Hard Knock Life.” Of course, despite those obvious assumptions, Variety says that there’s no word yet on whether Annie will be a contemporary, hip-hop-ified version or stick closely to the original songs, but come on now.
