We know that Cameron Diaz is Miss Hannigan in the Annie remake and now we know that Annie has an official release date of December 19, 2014. The film was originally penciled in to be released Christmas Day, but Columbia Pictures moved the movie back a week. Smart move, given all those kids who are out of school and legions of parents looking for something to do during Christmas break!
The remake of the original 1980’s film was originally started as a project for producer Will Smith’s daughter Willow. But, as time has gone by and the film didn’t get any traction, it made her too old so Beasts of the Southern Wild breakout star Quvenzhane Wallis has stepped in. Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are producing with Jay Z.
