It’s a big day for pint-sized star Quvenzhané Wallis. Hours before the “Beasts of the Southern Wild” breakout hits up the Academy Awards ceremony in support of her Best Actress nomination, Columbia Pictures today confirmed the actress is confirmed to play the titular role in their contemporary remake of “Annie.”
I’m so incredibly excited about this. I was obsessed with Annie when I was younger and was even in a production of the musical. I can’t wait to see a Black Annie on the big screen.
