Because we'd hate if they disposed of the classic tunes and went with 100% new songs; we know how updating classics using new raps and hip hop songs can ruin a movie... Jay-Z can ask his wife how Carmen: A Hip-Hopera turned out.
Besides new songs, casting could also be a hit or miss issue. Quite frankly, we'll be pissed if this isn't an all black version. Why cast Willow Smith and have rap superstar Jay-Z in production, and ruin it with boring white people filling other major roles? It's no surprise that black people do everything better. After all, wasn't that the moral of the story in Dreamgirls? That's what we took away from it, at least... Whatever. In any case, if Hollywood big shots were thinking of leaning the white way, the Sexy Trash staff has made a cast list for you to follow so you can do it the right way -
Annie: Willow Smith, obvi.
Miss Hannigan: Whitney Houston
Daddy Warbucks: Taye Diggs
Lily St. Regis: Nicki Minaj
