Following in the footsteps of the classic story, QuvenzhanÃ© Wallis plays Annie, an orphan girl who dreams of life outside her dreary orphanage and is given the chance when she is chosen to stay with a billionaire who she teaches how to love, and see happiness in life once again. Jamie Foxx will play the billionaire and Bullock, if she takes the role, will play the Miss Hannigan, the mean-spirtied head of the orphanage.
Will Smith (whose daughter Willow was originally attached to star), will produce with Jay-Z and James Lassiter.
After less-than-steller roles in “The Proposal” and “All About Steve”, Bullock won an Oscar for her turn in “The Blind Side” and will next appear alongside Melissa McCarthy in the action-comedy “The Heat”.
She is repped by CAA.
