Rose Byrne is in early talks to join Sony's musical remake Annie. If a deal can be made, the actress will play Grace, the assistant to Jamie Foxx's Daddy Warbucks.

Quvenzhané Wallis is attached to star as the orphan Annie, with Cameron Diaz portraying Agatha Hannigan, the mean-spirited nun who runs the orphanage Annie was raised in, before Daddy Warbucks (Jamie Foxx) takes her in. Sandra Bullock was originally in talks to play Agatha Hannigan before negotiations fell through last month.

Will Gluck is directing from a screenplay he is currently rewriting, which was originally written by Aline Brosh McKenna and Emma Thompson. Overbrook Entertainment's Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and James Lassiter are producing alongside Marcy Media's Jay-Z and Tyran Smith. It isn't known when production will begin.

Rose Byrne recently starred in The Internship, and she will next be seen in Insidious Chapter 2, opening in theaters September 13.
