Annie Remake: Watch Trailer With Foxx And Diaz

The first trailer has been released for the remake of the classic musical Annie, starring Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx.

Oscar-nominated child star Quvenzhane Wallis plays the 11-year-old orphan who melts a billionaire businessman's heart.

Diaz takes on the role of the mean orphanage owner Miss Hannigan while Foxx plays the tycoon Benjamin Stacks, who is based on the Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks character in the 1982 original.

The story is still set in New York but Annie's songs such a It's A Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow have been modernised by rapper Jay-Z.

The film also stars Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale and is directed by Will Gluck who made Friends With Benefits and Easy A.

It is due to be released in January 2015 in the UK.
