Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter, Ken Stovitz, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith are partnering with Jay-Z to release movies.

One of the first projects they’re discussing is a remake of the Broadway classic “Annie,” in which the Smiths’ daughter, Willow, 9, would star.”

The film will be developed with Sony Pictures Entertainment and produced by Overbrook Entertainment and Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter).

“The time is right to bring back ‘Annie’ to the big screen. Of course, we’re true believers in Willow’s talent and believe she will be perfect in this role,” said Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad in a statement. “Combining Willow with the Overbrook team that reimagined ‘Karate Kid’ and the spectacular Jay-Z makes this a dream project.”
