There have been a few remakes over the years, which have actually worked out quite well and managed to stand alongside the originals, with the rare few actually even being better but, there have been so many remakes that have just been unnecessary. One such unnecessary remake, in our opinion, is the upcoming Annie remake, which we do not hold much hope for.
WIth that said, the Annie remake does have a very impressive cast, which is clearly done in a bid to draw their loyal fans into theatres to see the film. Hollywood actress Cameron Diaz takes on the role of Hannigan in Annie, which sees the actress taking on some musical number in the movie, which Cameron has admitted was the most terrifying thing she has ever done in her career.
Diaz said of the scenes, "It was the most terrifying thing I've done in a movie." She also went on to say that she felt much more comfortable getting naked for her previous movie Sex Tape, than she did having to sing on a set full of people.
As well as starring Cameron Diaz, the impressive Annie cast also features such Hollywood names as Rose Byrne, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Jamie Foxx, Rihanna, Bobby Cannavale, Patricia Clarkson, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, as well as starring Quvenzhané Wallis in the role of Annie. The Annie remake has been directed by Will Gluck and is scheduled to open on December 19 in the US, before then hitting the big screen in the UK on December 26.
