Willow Smith to Star in "Annie" Remake

Little Orphan Annie was known for her red ringlets and Willow Smith is known for whipping her hair and now, the two "constructs" will converge, as the offspring of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith is set to star in the remake of Annie. Smith, 10, will play the titular character.
The film is being developed by Overbrook Entertainment, which the Smiths co-own, along with Jay-Z and Sony. This is the second time in as many years an overachieving Smith offspring is starring in a remake of an '80s classic. Son Jaden stared in the remake of The Karate Kid, which was a surprise hit last year. Sorta like Willow's "Whip My Hair" single. It's good to be a Pinkett-Smith, ain't it?
Are you a fan of the Smiths and their kids?
