Quvenzhane Wallis And Jamie Foxx Battle It Out On Set Of ‘Annie’

Published

on

Oscar nominee, Quvenzhane Wallis, was spotted in New York City on Wednesday shooting scenes with Jamie Foxx for their forthcoming film, Annie.

In the photos, Jamie, who plays Daddy Warbucks, appears to be trying to grab Wallis (Annie). The two were most likely filming an action scene for the musical remake, which makes complete sense, considering Foxx plays the man who eventually takes in little orphan Annie.

“Shooting on the street today was different. A lot of people were watching, but I had fun,” Quvenzhane wrote on Twitter during Wednesday’s shoot.

Jay Z and Will Smith are helping produce the highly anticipated flick, which is directed by Will Gluck. Smith’s daughter, Willow, was initially set to play the role of Annie, but Wallis ended up landing the role.

“She is an extraordinary young talent with an amazing range, not only as an actress but as a singer and dancer, and we can’t wait for audiences to further discover her,” Columbia Pictures’ Hannah Minghella wrote in a statement about the 10-year-old actress.

Cameron Diaz, known for her roles in There’s Something About Mary and Being John Malkovich, is also starring in the film as, Miss Hannigan.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
