Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx has signed on to play Benjamin Stacks, a modern-day incarnation of the Daddy Warbucks character.
 

Along with big names on-screen, there are also some notably talented industry names behind the project. The musical is set to be helmed by ‘Easy A‘ director Will Gluck, from a script from penned by ‘Nanny McPhee‘ writer Emma Thompson, while co-producer Jay-Z will provide the score soundtrack to the movie.
