Adaptation of the Broadway musical which was based upon the Harold Gray comic strip "Little Orphan Annie."
Jay-Z will "re-imagine" the music, much as he did when he re-fashioned the Broadway show's "Hard Knock Life" into an anthem of urban poverty.
Based on the stage musical Annie, with the book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin -- which in turn was based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie.
Jamie Foxx will play a character named Benjamin Stacks, a variation of Daddy Warbucks, who takes in the orphan girl being played by Quvenzhane Wallis.
