LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Brad Pitt is no stranger to adopting children – but is he ready to play Willow Smith’s adoptive onscreen dad in the “Annie” remake?
Access Hollywood asked 10-year-old Willow – star of the upcoming remake – who she wants to play Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks and she’s hoping “the sun will come out tomorrow” on one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
“Brad Pitt!” she told Access at Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” premiere on Monday night in Los Angeles.
As for details on the project, which dad Will Smith is producing with Jay-Z and Sony Pictures, the young star stayed tight-lipped.
“We’re just going to have to wait for that! You’re just going to have to wait,” she said.
In the meantime, Willow said she’s drawing inspiration from fellow young star Justin, whom she was excited to celebrate with at his massive movie premiere.
“I get to learn from him in a way, when he’s performing and doing what he does, so that the crowd gets excited,” Willow told Access. “So, I get to learn from him a lot.”
