Silver Screen: Annie

I am excited to finally see a sneak peek of the upcoming modern-day version of a classic, Annie. [I am a huge fan of the original movie with Aileen Quinn, Annie, Carol Burnett, Miss Hannigan, and Albert Finney, Daddy Warbucks in the 1982 version.] But from the looks of the trailer, I can't wait to see Quvenzhané Wallis play Annie, a young happy foster child trying to make it in the streets of NYC living the 'hard knock life'. Jamie Foxx plays the new Daddy Warbucks in the role of Will Stacks, a tycoon trying to turn New York Mayor. His VP is played by Rose Byrne. Cameron Diaz takes on the role of Miss Hannigan, the mean foster mom. A role which I am not sure she pulls off too well based on the trailer, so maybe in the movie it might be different? [I do wonder if they will have a rooster crowing brother for her, if you remember Tim Curry playing that role in the original.] I got goosebumps watching the trailer, as I am a sucker for musicals, happy endings, and just feel good movies where dreams come true. The movie will be out Christmas time this year.
