Quvenzhané Wallis had a very busy Sunday.
The 9-year-old attended the Academy Awards as the youngest Best Actress nominee in Oscars history. But in case you missed it, she also landed her next big Hollywood role – as the title character in an upcoming remake of the musical Annie.
Asked on the Oscars red carpet if she can sing, Wallis was charmingly coy. “I guess,” she replied from the red carpet.
For its part, Sony’s Columbia Pictures, which announced the news on Sunday, believes it has its girl for the 2014 film.
“With the recent Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim, Quvenzhané Wallis is a true star, and we believe her portrayal as Annie will make her a true worldwide star,” said Hannah Minghella, president of production at Columbia Pictures.
