It appears Jay-Z is at again, this following a development that his 40/40 clubs would hit several major airports across the nation. Now the hip-hop mogul teams up with Will Smith for a new business venture that will develop and and produce films. One of the projects currently being discussed is the re-imagination of the classic Broadway musical “Annie”, which Willow Smith would star in. No word on the name yet, you can read the full details here.
Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter, Ken Stovitz, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have formed a joint venture with Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter to develop and produce major motion pictures. One of the projects being discussed is the re-imagination of the classic Broadway musical ANNIE as a vehicle for Willow Smith to star. The film will be developed with Sony Pictures Entertainment and produced by Overbrook Entertainment and Mr. Carter.
“The Overbrook Entertainment family and I have a unified vision. We’ve already produced a Tony Award winning play and we’re developing a true superstar in Willow. This venture into film development and production is a perfect next step with teams that are accomplished, creative, and innovative.”
