    The movie just sounds bad. Why is there a need to remake it and why has Annie gone from a lovable red head? Think they will lose the heart of what the actual story is. Jamie Fox is nowhere near a good casting decision. No wonder Willow Smith dropped out even she saw how it would suck.

    Not to sound racist but I can’t see any white people going to see a “black” version of Annie.
