Story: Adaptation of the Broadway musical which was based upon the Harold Gray comic strip “Little Orphan Annie”. (Synopsis taken from Movie Insider).
Details: Jay-Z will “re-imagine” the music, much as he did when he re-fashioned the Broadway show’s “Hard Knock Life” into an anthem of urban poverty.
Jamie Foxx will play a character named Benjamin Stacks, a variation of Daddy Warbucks, who takes in the orphan girl being played by Quvenzhane Wallis.
