"With the recent Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim, Quvenzhané Wallis is a true star, and we believe her portrayal as Annie will make her a true worldwide star," Sony president of production Hannah Minghella said on Wednesday (February 27).

"She is an extraordinary young talent with an amazing range - not only as an actress but as a singer and dancer - and we can't wait for audiences to further discover her."

Wallis, who is 9 years old, became the youngest ever contender for the 'Actress in a Leading Role' Oscar this year, receiving a nomination for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild.

The actress was only 5 years old when she auditioned for the lead role of Hushpuppy in Benh Zeitlin's first feature-length film.
