We all know that Jay-Z and Will Smith are producing an urban version of the musical "Annie" and they may have found their Daddy Warbucks! THR is saying Jamie Foxx is in talks to join "Annie," Sony's big screen adaptation of the classic Little Orphan Annie story. Foxx's character is named Benjamin Stacks, an updated version of the Daddy Warbucks character.
The role of Annie will be played by the fantastic nine-year-old Oscar nominee, Quvenzhané Wallis, from "Beasts of the Southern Wild." Will Gluck ("Friends with Benefits") is attached to direct. "Annie" will be released in 2014.
