Bobby-Cannavale-Cameron-Diaz-Annie-interview

Opening this weekend 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 ByrneBobby CannavaleAdewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and David Zayas.  For more on Annie, watch the trailer or these five clips and eleven minutes of behind-the-scenes footage.

At the recent New York City press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale.  They talked about collaborating with Will Gluck, contemporizing the film, the new songs, if a lot of friends that wanted to visit them on the set, how much fun they had making the film, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
