The much beloved comic strip turned musical turned film known as Annie is being remade with an all star cast. Cameron Diaz, Jaimie Fox, Quvenzhané Wallis, and Rose Byrne are all part of the cast that is breathing fresh life into the story.
In the above video, we get the first moving images of the cast, in their costumes, performing song. It’s always difficult to judge a film by these paparazzi videos, but the product appears to be quite enjoyable.
The film appears to be hitting many of the same beats that the original hit, with the notable change of Jaimie Fox’s character no longer being a businessman named Daddy Warbucks. In this version he’s playing a character called Benjamin Stacks.
The film opens Dec 19 2014. More details should be coming soon.
