“I don’t think we could have done this movie unless Quvenzhané came along. It’s sort of like she’s tailor-made for the role in a sense. I would challenge you to find a girl who personifies ‘Annie’ better than Quvenzhané does.” -Jamie Foxx, ESSENCE
Jamie and Quvenzhané will star in the classic remake of Anne this December and from what we can see, it will already be a family favorite – produced by Will & Jada Smith and Jay Z. We can also look forward to Quvenzhané singing and dancing in this movie, something quite different from 12 Years a Slave and Beasts of the Southern Wild.
In ESSENCE’s December issue cover story, “Gifted & Grateful,” readers find out how Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx win over hearts-including each other’s-in the magical remake of Annie. The stars of the much anticipated film also talk to ESSENCE about how much fun they had fun working together, handling show business, and how they each plan to ring in this holiday season. The December issue of ESSENCE hits newsstands on Friday, November 7th.
Annie will be in theaters on December 19th! Read more about it at Essence.com
