Quvenzhané Wallis in Talks for Annie Remake

04 February 2013 - Beverly Hills, California - Quvenzhane Wallis. 85th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Last week, we learned the long-in-development Jay-Z- and Will Smith–produced Annie remake took a major stepped forward and hired director Will Gluck. However, it had been developing for so long that the intended star, Willow Smith, aged (and whipped her hair) out of the part. So Entertainment Weekly reports that Quvenzhané Wallis is in talks to fill that adorable-size hole in the movie. No decision has been made yet officially, but anyone who's seen the Oscar nominee in Beasts of the Southern Wild knows she can act the hard-knock life.
