Despite currently looking like this, Jamie Foxx is reportedly in talks to be allowed around a young girl for the Will Smith and Jay-Z-produced Annie remake. He'd star opposite Beasts of the Southern Wild's Quvenzhane Wallis as the film's Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks, Annie's affluent adoptive father who would, in this version, go by the even more painfully on-the-nose name of "Benjamin Stacks." Because he has so many hundred-dollar bills! Easy A's Will Gluck is directing, and production on the film is expected to begin in the fall.
