Actress Cameron Diaz is happy to be a part of musical-comedy adaptation of ‘Annie’. In the film, which released last week, little orphan Annie is played by 11-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, Miss Hannigan taken on by Diaz and Jamie Foxx plays Will Stacks based on the original character, Oliver Warbucks, reported Contactmusic.
“I grew up with Annie. The songs were something everybody knew. Even if you didn’t see the movie, you knew the songs. “Getting to do Annie was such a great opportunity – one because you get to sing and dance which is something you never get to do and two to make a movie that is for a new generation. To say, here you go, here’s your Annie. That’s really awesome,” Diaz said.
This is the third on screen adaptation of ‘Annie’ and the cast and producers, Will Smith and Jay Z, are hoping that modern take on the classic musical should be appreciated well among the audience.
