>Will Smith developing Annie remake for hair-whipping daughter

>Will Smith is in talks with Sony to bring a remake of the beloved musical Annie to the big screen, starring none other than his own “Whip My Hair” daughter Willow.

Variety is reporting Smith is keen to develop this project after the success of The Karate Kid in 2010 with his son Jaden in the lead role. Smith helped develop and produce the remake of the 1984 film, which went on to gross more than $350 million worldwide.

The news gets worse. Although this project is in the very early stages of development, rapper Jay-Z, who helped Willow on her first single Whip My Hair, has been touted to assist in the development of the music for the film. Correct me if I’m wrong but the film already has music – it’s a classic musical! This can only mean one thing: that the Smith clan is keen to modernise the story of little orphan Annie and add some catchy rap-pop songs. Sounds, uh, delightful.

How many kids does Will Smith have?! Are we in danger of having to remake every 1980s film to provide a platform for his overachieving children? One thing is for certain: the sun’ll come out tomorrow and this project will most likely go ahead.

Discuss: Would you like to see a modernised Annie with Willow Smith in the lead?

  1. >Ms Lomas! You don't love the three-minute slice of pop genius that is Whip Your Hair?! And don't tell me you're not a fan of Jay-Z, who has ALREADY covered – and bettered – Hard Knock Life!That being said, this whole thing sounds atrocious. And I LIKED The Karate Kid.

  2. >Oh this sounds vomitous. The Karate Kid was a vanity project for the other kid. Why can't these kids get roles on their merits instead of nepotism?

  3. >I whip my hair back and forth I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it) I whip my hair back and forth I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good) I whip my hair back and forth I whip my hair back and forth I whip my hair back and forth I whip my hair back and forth

  4. >Will and Jada need to be stopped. Now.
