Willow Smith Won’t Star In Annie Remake Produced By Her Father

by on January 31, 2013

black-actresses-willow-smith-blallywood.comWillow Smith was poised to star in a film remake of the family musical Annie. The film is being produced by her father, Will Smith, and was intended to be a vehicle to launch Willow’s acting career. Will even recruited Jay-Z to write musical tracks for the remake. ¬†However, the film has been in the works for a few years and Willow is now beyond the age of the main character. It’s been confirmed that the 12-year-old actress-singer will no longer appear in the title role of the film. First Showing says she’s grown up too much to play the bright-eyed orphan, though I don’t think this has been officially confirmed as the reason. After all, a 12-year-old playing a 10-year old is not a big stretch. However, Willow may want to present herself as a more of a mature and less of cutesy-young-girl these days. Maybe its a smart decision for her?
