Today in “casting rumors that will surprise no one,” EW is reporting that nine-year-old Best Actress nominee Quvenzhané Wallis is “in consideration” to lead Sony’s new Annieremake.

With long-attached star Willow Smith officially out and Easy A director Will Gluck officially in to helm the picture, we’ve been expecting casting buzz to start trickling out, and Wallis seems like a no-brainer of a potential star. Wallis is one of young Hollywood’s true rising stars, she’s got the positive buzz of her historic Oscar nomination, and she’s totally adorable. The outlet does stress that “Gluck and the producers at Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment banner and Jay-Z’s Marcy Media, which have been developing the project, have yet to make any casting decisions.” Well, we’ll just have to see about that.
