Quvenzhane Wallis To Play Annie In the Movie Musical

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Oscar-nominated, Louisiana-born actress Quvenzhane Wallis is to play the titular orphan in the movie musical  `Annie,` producers said."



You may not be able to pronounce or spell "Quvezhane", but you will be hearing her name a lot in the coming years and decades.

With her brilliant portrayal of Hushpuppy in the remarkable film "Beasts of the Southern Wild"  Wallis has become an overnight sensation.

The child prodigy has been showered with critical acclaim, and I believe that her portrayal as Annie will make her superstar.

The young thespian can also sing and dance, as we will soon discover. The movie will be released during the winter holiday season in 2014.

It`s so cumbersome writing "Quvenzhane", the child needs a nickname.
