Glee creator Ryan Murphy drops out of Willow Smith Annie remake
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Director Ryan Murphy and producer Will Smith have parted ways on the upcoming remake of the musical ANNIE, which will star Will Smith’s daughter Willow. There’s no firm reason as to why, but it’s probably due to creative differences (or because Will Smith is super picky about his and his children’s careers). So Murphy has decided to move onto another potential project that will star Julia Roberts and will be distributed by Sony. No word on what said project will be, but hopefully it won’t be as bland as their other collaboration EAT PRAY LOVE. Although, even if Murphy decides to pass on the Julia Roberts project, he’ll be keeping busy with his show GLEE, which is still dominating the television scene.
I’m still on the fence about this ANNIE remake. I actually thought the remake of THE KARATE KID was good, but I watched one of Willow Smith’s music videos and was not impressed. I can’t decide if it’s her singing voice or my age, probably a little of both.
