The wonderfully talented Emma Thompson is negotiating with Will Smith and Jay-Z to write their adaptation of “Annie”, according to Vulture.

Yes, you read correctly- Emma Thompson with Will Smith and Jay-Z.

Apparently they’re after her supreme way with words, with Thompson winning an Oscar for her screenplay of “Sense and Sensibility”, and more recently the “Nanny McPhee” series.

Smith’s in line to direct with his daughter Willow to play the title role of Annie, and Jay-Z will write the music.

This could be a partnership made in heaven, or one of the world’s most bizarre professional combos ever.

Fingers crossed for the heaven one, right?
