Southland‘s Dorian Missick has been cast in Columbia’s Annie remake. He and Tracie Thoms will play Annie’s “fake parents” in the pic which stars Quvenzhane Wallis and Jamie Foxx. Will Smith and Jay-Z are producing the Christmas 2014 release which begins filming in NYC this Fall. Missick recently shot the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Beware the Night with Eric Bana and Joel McHale. He’s repped by Innovative Artists, MJ Management, and Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson and Binder.

WB has tapped Morgan Freeman to narrate Island of Lemurs: Madagascar. The IMAX 3D docu adventure features lemur expert Patricia Wright and tracks the species indigenous to the lands of Madagascar. The pic reunites Freeman with writer/producer Drew Fellman and director David Douglas (Born to Be Wild 3D). Island of Lemurs opens in select IMAX and IMAX 3D screens April 4. Freeman is repped by CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.

Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods, Much Ado About Nothing) is joining William Monahan‘s Mojave opposite Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund, and Walton Goggins. The Atlas Independent indie follows a near-suicidal artist who escapes to the desert only to encounter his doppelganger-like antagonist, a homicidal drifter. Read More »
