Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale Talk ANNIE, the Fun Shoot, Collaborating with Will Gluck, the Songs, and More

     December 17, 2014


Opening this weekend is Will Gluck‘s modern reimagining of the Broadway classic Annie.  The film stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) in the title role as a young, happy, street-tough foster kid living with the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) who is taken in by New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  The film also stars Rose ByrneBobby CannavaleAdewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and David Zayas.  For more on Annie, watch the trailer or these five clips and eleven minutes of behind-the-scenes footage.

At the recent New York City press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale.  They talked about collaborating with Will Gluck, contemporizing the film, the new songs, if a lot of friends that wanted to visit them on the set, how much fun they had making the film, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
