Jamie Foxx is in negotiations to star opposite Quvenzhane Wallis in Sony Pictures' update of classic comic turned musical "Annie".
Foxx would play Benjamin Stacks, a character that will essentially be this modern version's take on the Daddy Warbucks character from the original.
The offer is reportedly out to Foxx, and his team has begun talks. Filming begins in the Fall for a late 2014 release.
Will Gluck is directing the film which Will Smith and Jay-Z are producing.
