Sandra Bullock in talks for Annie role

Jun 13 2013, 10:14am CDT | by

Sandra Bullock is in talks to star in 'Annie'.

The 'Heat' actress is in ''early'' negotiations for a role in Sony's updated version of the classic musical about an orphan girl, playing Miss Hannigan, the mean-spirited owner of the orphanage Annie lives in, according to TheWrap.com.

Nine-year-old star Quvenzhane Wallis - who became the youngest ever actress to receive a Best Actress nomination at the Oscars earlier this year for her role in 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' - is set to play the titular character in the new adaptation, which will be produced by actor Will Smith and rapper Jay-Z.

Bullock would join fellow Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx in the flick, as the actor has signed on to play Benjamin Stacks, a modern day incarnation of the Daddy Warbucks character.

As well as its impressive pedigree on screen, the film boasts several big names behind the scenes, also.

The musical is set to be directed by 'Easy A' helmer Will Gluck based on a script from 'Nanny McPhee' writer Emma Thompson, while co-producer Jay-Z will score the film.

Additionally, Smith will produce with his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith through their production firm Overbrook Entertainment.

The project has been in the works since 2010 when Smith and Jay-Z conceived the film as a starring vehicle for Smith's young daughter, Willow, but the singer-and-actress decided to walk away from the role last year.

'Annie' will begin production later this year for release in 2014.

Wanted: one careful, evil masterThough Universal showed off the first trailer for Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me spin-off Minions at CinemaCon in March, it’s only now arriving online. Here then, is the secret origin of Kevin, Stuart, Bob and the rest of the chattering little pill-shaped creatures. As Illumination boss Chris Meledandri told us earlier this year, the new film turns back the clock to a time before the Minions met Steve Carell’s Gru. Way back, in fact… ...

Nov 3 2014 7:52pm CST | Source: Slash Film

Go into any kids store and you don’t see the main character of Despicable Me on t-shirts. You see his minions. So it was not a surprise when Universal announced a few years back that those crazy yellow guys would get their own movie. Fast forward to today and the first Minions trailer is here. The film, directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, features the voices of Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and doesn’t open until July 10, 2015. So, it’s a little surprising but you ca ...

It Might Be 2014, but 2001 is Making a Comeback

Oct 27 2014 4:05pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Cinophiles don’t exactly need an excuse to revisit Stanley Kubrick’s iconic films, but with the re-release of 2001: A Space Odyssey and one of the latest Simpsons spoofs, “A Clockwork Yellow”, it seems as though once again the world has gone crazy for the visionary director. Opening in November in the UK, 2001 really doesn’t need the extra hype, but will benefit from a whole new generation of movie buffs who’ve just recen ...
