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