Will Smith May Take On Annie

Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith continue on in their plans to slowly take over the world via their children: Will Smith is in talks to remake the musical Annie — with daughter Willow in the lead role. And of course, because Willow is not the typical kid, with typical parents, dad is in talks with "Whip My Hair" collaborator Jay-Z about possibly coming onboard. It's still unclear whether the project will incorporate original songs or create new, Jay-Z-ified tracks. This isn't Smith's first time turning his children into mega-money makers: He produced The Karate Kid, starring son Jaden, which grossed more than $350 million worldwide. [Variety]
