Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Annie, which doesn’t hit theaters until December 19. Directed by Will Gluck the new version stars Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale and Cameron Diaz.
The Broadway musical “Annie” was based upon the popular comic strip and radio show, “Little Orphan Annie” and features songs with music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin and a book by Thomas Meehan. The show originally opened in 1977, and immediately became a hit, winning seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
In 1982, Columbia Pictures released a film adaptation directed by John Huston and starring Albert Finney, Carol Burnett, Bernadette Peters, Tim Curry, and Aileen Quinn as Annie.
