Speaking of singing, Quvenzhané Wallis starts shooting Annie in the summer. For her audition, the 9-year-old says she had to sing “most of the songs” from the musical.
Her Beasts of the Southern Wild director Benh Zeitlin gushed, “Quvenzhané can sing, dance and act. She can do anything.”
Queen Latifah also told us she’d love to be in the flick, which she has jokingly renamed Blannie. “Call the Jigga Man and tell him,” she said referring to Jay-Z, who is a producer on the movie.
