Willow Smith Drops Out of "Annie"
Wed, 06 Feb 2013 11:35:46
Willow Smith, daughter of actor/rapper Will Smith, has dropped out of Annie. She will no longer play the titular character of Little Orphan Annie in her father's revamp of the beloved musical.
Willow was 10 and whipping her hair back and forth when the project was announced in 2011. But now she is 12 and will be 13 in October, and will have outgrown the role, due to production scheduling.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in the autumn with a slated 2014 release date.
The replacement for Smith has yet to be named.
At least we know Will Smith doesn't practice nepotism.
Who should play Annie in the reboot?
