Quvenzhane Wallis rides a Citibikie through Harlem on the set of ‘Annie’
Shadow and Act posted this photo to their blog which shows the young actress riding a Citibike through the streets of Harlem. Quvenzhane is seen sporting a longer, dark brown version of the famous unruly curly red hair that made the original Annie so “undesirable”.
Thought it looks like Overbrook Entertainment decided to stick to the curly-haired orphan aspects of the original story, according to Shadow and Act, several updates have been made to the original script.For starters Annie’s is now “Isabella” who desires a “no limit credit-card with shopping sprees galore”. Played by Jamie Foxx, “Benjamin Stacks” will be the modern version of Daddy Warbucks.
Taking a few creative liberties seems like the best options for this remake, since the original script was set during the Great Depression and times sure have changed! Original Annie longed for a two-parent home – which isn’t so ‘normal’ or desirable in 2013, Finding a 10 year-old who has never been to the movies, even if they’ve never had a home is next to impossible – today’s pre-teens want cell phones. Remaking the film would have to include these and a number of other updates to stay relevant to the times. Somehow the only thing that seems to be the same is an orphans desire for money and a child’s curly hair deeming them “undesirable” This remake should be interesting to say the least.
The Annie remake is due in theaters on December 25, 2014 – will you be watching?
