Jay-Z is rumoured to be composing the soundtrack to a re-scripted version of 1982 screen musical ‘Annie’, as will star pop protégée Willow Smith as its orphaned protagonist. With Will Smith senior enlisted as a producer, the film will carry a screenplay written by actress Emma Thompson.

In lieu of having any ‘Annie’ info beyond the above basics to share, here instead is the video for Jay-Z’s ‘Annie’-sampling ‘Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)’.
