The Oscars' youngest Best Actress nominee QUVENZHANE WALLIS is reportedly in talks to replace WILLOW SMITH as the star of the upcoming ANNIE movie musical.
The nine-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild star has emerged as a frontrunner for the big screen remake of the Broadway show, according to EW.com.
Director Will Gluck and producers at Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment banner and Jay-Z's Marcy Media have yet to make any firm casting decisions, but insiders suggest Wallis is a big hit.
Smith's 12-year-old daughter quit the project last month (Jan13) and her father recently said, "Willow was supposed to be doing Annie, we got Jay-Z to do the movie, go the studio to come in and Willow had such a difficult time on tour with Whip My Hair and she said, 'You know Daddy,' I don't think so... I have a better idea, how about I just be 12?'"
