After being cast as the leading lady in the remake of the musical classic Annie, 12-year old Willow Smith is no longer attached to the film. During the time that the development of the project began, Willow was only 9-years old. Now almost a teenager, Willow has simply “outgrown” the role as the “Little Orphan Annie.”
So now that the film has settled on a director, a new lead person will have to be cast for the role. Sony is shooting to have the film in theaters by 2014.
Stay tuned for news on who will be cast as the new Annie.
