The world loves Sandra Bullock and they just might love her even more as Miss Hannigan.
Bullock is currently in early talks to play the mean, yet witty Miss Hannigan in the remake of Annie, according to THR. The film, which is being put forth by Sony with Will Smith and Jay-Z producing, has already cast Quvenzhane Wallis in the titular role and Jamie Foxx as a modern version of Daddy Warbucks, named Benjamin Stacks.
Carol Burnett portrayed the role of Miss Hannigan in the 1982 musical adaptation of the comic strip. Her performance has lived on in the hearts of many, but Bullock just might be able to pull it off if all goes well.
Will Gluck is directing the film. Additional producers on the project include Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter and Jada Pinkett-Smith with Jay Brown and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith through Marcy Media.
Sony is aiming to release the film sometime in 2014.
