Justin Timberlake Rumored to Play ‘Daddy Warbucks’ in “Annie” Remake
Justin Timberlake might be rolling in dough in more ways than one.
On top of potentially having a No. 1 selling album, Timberlake is rumored to be taking on the role of ‘Daddy Warbucks’ in the upcoming Annie remake.
According to the NYPost, the remake will star Quvenzhané Wallis in the titular role. The film is being produced by Will Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partners, Jada Pinkett Smith, and James Lassiter. Jay-Z , who also a producer on the film, will provide music for the film.
Timberlake may not seem like the most obvious choice, but he is going on tour with Jay-Z this summer, so maybe that has something to do with the casting.
The current release date for the Annie remake is December 25, 2014.
