Will Smith is hoping to make a new version of musical movie 'Annie' as a starring vehicle for his daughter Willow.
Willow Smith could be starring in a remake of classic musical movie 'Annie'.
Her father Will Smith is said to be exploring the idea of making a new version of the film - about a young girl who sings her way through life in an orphanage - with Sony following the success of his remake of 'The Karate Kid' with son Jaden.
Will would produce the project - which is currently in the early stages of development - while Jay-Z, who collaborated with 10-year-old Willow on her chart-topping single 'Whip My Hair', is in negotiations to work on the music.
Jay-Z previously created a hip-hop version of 'Hard Knock Life', one of the best-known songs to come from the musical.
It is not known if the movie would be a contemporary version of the original, Variety reports.
No other artists or crew have yet been attached to the 'Annie' project.
Despite currently focusing on a music career, Willow has appeared alongside her father in 2007 movie 'I Am Legend' and also voiced the character of Baby Gloria in animated movie 'Madagascar 2'.
