Hey, remember a year ago when Will Smith wanted Emma Thompson to write him a remake of the musical "Annie" for his daughter Willow Smith to star in? Well, apparently, it's still happening, but now Smith wants another writer to work on Thompson's script.

Creative Differences Spawned From Not Having Any Hair To Whip Back And ForthIn Hollywood, the saying goes, you fail upwards. Enter Ryan Murphy, who received his big break in movies by helming the star-studded adaptation of "Running With Scissors." The fact that it was borderline-unwatchable dross didn't seem to affect his next job, the high-profile "Eat Pray Love," which somehow endeared itself to $200 million worth of undemanding Julia Roberts fans, despite being nearly as intolerable as its predecessor. So it goes for Murphy, a "mastermind" between two facile television entertainments ("Nip/Tuck," "Glee") that further remind us of a distinct chasm separating the big and small screens.

Willow Smith already turned heads with her single/video "Whip My Hair" and so no surprise, the youngster is already being eyed for big screen musical project. You gotta strike while the iron is hot.
