Will Smith will remake Annie and put daughter Willow Smith in the lead

Those lucky Smith kids! How many kids in Hollywood have a father who is such a blockbuster star and makes so much money that he can produce films for his rising star children and make them pretty good? Well, the only ones I can think of are Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but I still think they would have a tough time competing against those Smith kids, because those children actually have some talent. Will Smith is in the process of producing a remake of ANNIE as a starring vehicle for his daughter Willow Smith. Apparently there is nothing set in stone yet, but the ball is rolling. Oh and if you’re Will Smith you can get people like Jay-Z to write songs for your film too (another redo of It’s a Hard Knock Life, right). Yeah, those Smith kids have it made.
If you didn’t get a chance to see last year’s THE KARATE KID remake with Jaden Smith, I would. I’m a big fan of the original, but the remake was pretty good and Jaden is a decent actor who has a bright future.
