Willow Smith Films Her Acting Debut

EXCLUSIVE!

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s 6-year-old daughter, Willow, films scenes for her debut film on Monday on the Toronto set of the new American Girl movie, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery.

Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) will play the title character in the Depression-era flick. Other stars include: Julia Ormond, Chris O’Donnell, Joan Cusack, Wallace Shawn, Stanley Tucci, Jane Krakowski and Glenne Headly.

Via The Hollywood Reporter: “Kit Kittredge, the first theatrical adaptation of the popular American Girl line of dolls, tells the story of Kit Kittredge (Breslin), a clever, resourceful 10-year-old growing up in Cincinnati during the Great Depression who helps her mother (Ormond) run a boardinghouse when her father (O’Donnell) loses his job. Cusack will play a nurse who moves into the Kittredges’ boardinghouse. Thieriot will play a boy accused of committing robberies, while Shawn will play the editor in chief of the Cincinnati Reporter Register.”

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery is set for a nationwide July 2, 2008 release.

Willow‘s big brother Jaden, who turns 9 next month, has also dipped his foot in acting. The little guy picked up the 2007 MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance for the 2006 hit The Pursuit of Happyness. Jaden did not attend the Los Angeles award ceremony. Since the whole family is in Toronto, he taped an acceptance speech with his parents, which they showed after his win.
