Annie began filming this week under the direction of Will Gluck (Easy A). Jamie Foxx, who stars as the Daddy Warbucks-like millionaire Benjamin Stacks, has tweeted the first image from the set, which finds our new Little Orphan Annie, Quvenzhané Wallis, in her drab orphanage attire. We don't yet know if Quvenzhané will be donning Annie's signature red and white mansion dress, though we may be getting something completely different as Jamie promises the 'rebirth' of a classic.
