‘Annie’ Remake Filming in Little Italy Today; Cameron Diaz is Miss Hannigan

Annie is getting the Hollywood remake treatment, and it’s been filming around downtown since earlier this fall. All shooting is apparently cloaked under the code name of “Moonquake Lake” to throw off those
meddling kids and their dog eager bloggerazis. EV Grieve spotted the production in Alphabet City a couple months ago; today the film will be headquartered along Spring Street in Little Italy.
This is the first film adaptation of the Annie classic in over thirty years, and it’ll be a modern take on the tale. Vital stats include Will Gluck as director, Jay-Z and Will Smith as producers, Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan, and Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks (formerly Daddy Warbucks).
This seems appropriate given Jay-Z’s involvement…
