I’m still not sold on this. The movie that was built for Willow Smith, but now stars “Beasts of the Southern Wild” actress Quvenzhane Wallis has added another big name. Yes, “Annie” now has Jamie Foxx playing the Daddy Warbucks role, though his name will be changed to Benjamin Stacks. A while ago, rumors that Justin Timerblake was playing the role, but this report comes from The Hollywood Reporter, so I’d trust this one. Will Gluck (“Easy A”) is directing. Foxx can next be seen in “White House Down” along with Channing Tatum.
