I'd rather they bring the old 7-UP guy out of retirement for this role. ( Geoffrey Holder )

OMG. Why have they "Blackified" Annie? This is going to be a hot ass mess....I can smell it already. They might as welll call it "Lil Nigga Annie".
Black people are going to run to see this shit in droves. Are they going to have Tyler Perry in drag as Madea playing Miss. Hannigan too? Sad.

I think that it would be good to see a black cast of wonderful artist do this classic. How about we wait until it comes out then talk about it? This is why we don't get any further then we are, because of all the negativity.

I can't understand why people are so mad about this casting. It sounds good to me. Jamie is a good actor and that little girl is wonderful. Some people will hate just because. It gets irritating. I never see anyone one else always being negative about everything as some black folks.

sounds good to me, too.

I am not hating but why do we always have to go and remake a movie with white actors/cast into a black version...The Wiz, Steel Magnolias, The Karate Kid, etc...it is just not necessary...do something original of good quality with black actors/cast.

I think people will hate and should... Because there is absolutely zero reason to take someone else's work and drasticly change it like this. Can the black minds not come up with something original? They have to take something "white" and change it to their own. And even then it's not even done with proper homage to the original they are destroying.
