THR is reporting that Sandra is in talks for the “Annie” remake.
Will Smith and Jay-Z are producing the update of the classic comic strip-turned-musical.
Sandra Bullock is in early talks to join Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhane Wallis in Annie, the update of the classic comic strip-turned-musical that Sony is making with producers Will Smith and Jay-Z.
But that is only if a deal is made. Bullock and the studio were in talks in March, but the actress ultimately passed at the time. Now the two sides are back at the table.
Carol Burnett memorably played the role in the 1982 movie.
Will Gluck is directing the project, which has a host of producers: Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter and Jada Pinkett-Smith are joined by Jay-Z, Jay Brown and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith through Marcy Media.
Sony is eyeing a late fall production start for an anticipated 2014 release.
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s buddy cop comedy “The Heat” will be screened in advance for Boston police officers and FBI agents.
The city was stunned Monday after twin bombings at the Boston Marathon killed three people and injured scores more.
Bullock, who plays an uptight “Miss Congeniality”-esque FBI agent sent to work on a case in Boston in the film, thought the screening was a small token of appreciation.
“It’s been an amazing tightknit community before this happened, and it just bonded a community even more. I don’t think a screening would ever be enough, feel like it’s enough to do for them.
I think having been there, having had our entire crew around us all the time, who are all from Boston, you’re just hoping. And when you see the aftermath, I try to look on the other side, which is, ‘Look how amazing the people were. Look at those people that ran toward everyone without thinking twice about themselves.’ “
Sandy was announced today as a presenter to this year Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, to be air live next March 23rd.

EW has confirmed that previous Best Actress Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, and Sandra Bullock will present at this year’s Academy Awards. Witherspoon won in 2005 for Walk the Line, Kidman won for The Hours in 2002, Berry won for Monster’s Ball in 2001, and Bullock won for The Blind Side in 2009.
The Academy Awards will air on ABC Sunday, February 24.
On Wednesday, Jan. 9, Sandy was presented with the first-ever People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. In 2005, Bullock adopted New Orleans’ Warren Easton Charter High School, which sustained $4 million worth of damage after Hurricane Katrina hit. The single mom’s good pal, Regina King, introduced a highlight reel featuring Bullock’s continued relief efforts.
When a Vera Wang-clad Bullock took the stage, she was typically humble — and hilarious. “Two things: Regina, could you be in better shape? It’s just all kinds of wrong,” the 48-year-old honoree asked. “And she just dropped the F-bomb, by the way. I don’t know if you heard it, but I did.”
Bullock — who adopted her son Louis from New Orleans in 2010 and has a home in the Garden District — credited the volunteers for rebuilding the charter school.
That little clip that you saw does not even begin to scrape the surface of the amazing volunteers and humanitarians that I’ve come to love in New Orleans, and I’m not at all being modest when I say I don’t do anything compared to what they do on a daily basis. I am simply blessed to be able to do what I do because of what you allow me to do, and that is write a check and be a really good cheerleader and that’s it.
You will not find a student there that doesn’t know that they are loved and cared for under that roof. Half the senior class is attending college classes in their free-time. We have 100 perfect graduation rate. The students and faculty go to school on Saturdays to either study or to help others. I would so never make it in that school! They compete, but they never cut each other down. And all that happens not because it’s easy, but because they do not allow themselves any other option than to succeed, even when life outside of those walls gives them no indication of support and hope.
