Now playing in theaters is Will Gluck‘s modern reimagining of the Broadway classic Annie. The film stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) in the title role as a young, happy, street-tough foster kid living with the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) who is taken in by New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move. The film also stars Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and David Zayas. For more on Annie, watch the trailer, five clips and eleven minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, or read Matt’s review.
At the New York City press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne and Quvenzhane Wallis. They talked about collaborating with Will Gluck, how much fun they had making the film, embarrassing moments on set, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch.
Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne and Quvenzhane Wallis:
- Some shoots are tough. Was Annie a lot of fun to make?
- What was it like collaborating with Will Gluck?
- Embarrassing moments on set.
- Foxx says a funny thing about Will Smith and Jay Z.
