CHANGE UP: Willow Smith WILL NOT Play Annie In The Movie Remake

So much for Willow Smith whipping her hair in the big remake from her parents' and Jay-Z's production companies.  She's OUT of the upcoming "Annie" movie.  Deets inside...

The "Annie" remake via Sony Pictures just nabbed a director.  And it's Friends With Benefits & Easy A director Will Gluck.  So now that the film is full speed ahead with a Fall 2014 release....Willow has now outgrown the role.  Pre-production began three years ago when she was 9 (the age of Annie).  But now that she's 12, she's too old for the role.

Willow's parents Will & Jada Smith, are still producing the film via their company Overbrook Entertainment.  And they've teamed up with Jay-Z on the project.  Mr. Carter stated, according to Deadline:

“For Marcy Media’s first foray into film, we couldn’t ask for better partners and mentors than Overbrook Entertainment. We are excited to work with Will Gluck and Sony Pictures Entertainment. My well-known affinity for the classic ‘Hard Knock Life’ makes Annie a natural vehicle to lead us into the world of the cinema.”

The film starts shooting this fall.  Now, who should play that lead role?

I don't understand why they give her so much freedom. A little rules and restrictions is fine. I'm not saying keep her on lock down, question all her ideas and opinions or make her feel all her decisions are bad.
