The movie also stars The Amazing Spider-Man 2 villain Foxx as Benjamin Stacks,Diaz as Miss Hannigan, Rose Byrne as Stacks’ assistant Grace and Bobby Cannavale. Though Annie debuted as a comic strip in 1924, the property is arguably best known for the 1977 Broadway musical and its 1982 film adaptation from director John Huston.
