Emma Thompson Recruited To Help Make Will Smith's Daughter an Actress
Ever wonder what it's like to work alongside Will Smith? Well, aside from negotiating around his enormous trailer, it turns out it's mostly hearing a lot of, "So, want to help make my kid an even bigger star?"--or so it seems from today's news that Smith wants his Men in Black III co-star Emma Thompson to write that Annie remake he's planning as a starring vehicle for his ten-year-old daughter, Willow. According to Vulture, Smith and fellow producer Jay-Z are in negotiations to hire on Thompson--whose writing CV includes the Nanny McPhee series, Sense and Sensibility, and the sitcom Thompson--to pen their reboot of the Broadway hit. And because Will Smith wants this for his offspring, it shall be done. Hey, Jaden's going to be a senator next year!
