At the time, detailed info wasn't available. But, the full press release from Sony Pictures is out, and I'll highlight the important things that I'm sure most are curious about.
- First, and most importantly, yes, Ms Wallis can sing! That was always the one question I didn't really have an answer for. But apparently, she can not only sing, but she can dance as well, and has range. The press release states:
She is an extraordinary young talent with an amazing range, not only as an actress but as a singer and dancer, and we can’t wait for audiences to further discover her.
- Second, it's going to be a long while before we see the film in theaters, because Annie won't be released until the 2014 Christmas Holiday season. So, we've got almost 2 years, really, to wait. Although, as studios love to do far in advance, expect some early teases, maybe later this year, when the film is scheduled to start shooting. A photo here; or even a teaser/coming soon trailer there.
- And lastly, the film is being overseen at Sony Pictures by none other than our man Devon Franklin and Andrea Giannetti.
Up next for Ms Wallis is a film that's already generating debate even though it won't be out till the fall, Steve McQueen's Twelve Years a Slave.
