Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart are two of Hollywood's hottest actors at the moment -- Foxx takes center stage in both 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' (as the villain Electro) and the 'Annie' remake (starring opposite Quvenzhané Wallis as Bejamin Stacks, a play on Daddy Warbucks), while Hart has starred in comedy after comedy, including 'Think Like a Man,' 'About Last Night' and 'Ride Along.' So it's about time these two got together to headline their own film, and they're now in talks to star in 'The Black Phantom.'
Justin Timberlake is back in the music spotlight with his latest album 'The 20/20 Experience,' after years of taking a hiatus in favor of his acting career. However, is he still looking to keep his movie chops in shape with a role in the upcoming 'Annie' remake? Will he be donning the Daddy Warbucks "Suit & Tie"? Well...not so fast.
Quvenzhané Wallis made a name for herself by starring in the critically acclaimed 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' and snagging a nice 2013 Oscar nomination for Best Actress in the process, making her the youngest, at 9, to get a nomination. All eyes are on her as she makes her next step into the acting world, and the title role in the upcoming 'Annie' reboot could be where she heads next.
Studios are constantly going to novels to look for new and exciting properties to bring to the big screen. It's been that way for decades and isn't going to change anytime soon. Science fiction used to be the go-to medium for Hollywood, now it's vampires and smut fan fiction. But once in a while a pretty cool property manages to sneak its way through.
