Cameron Diaz has landed the part of Miss Hannigan in Annie.

The Something About Mary actress has agreed a deal to play the mean orphanage manager in a remake of the classic film, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Sandra Bullock had previously been tipped for the role but didn't sign up to the musical.

Cameron will join Beasts Of The Southern Wild star Quvenzhane Wallis who has been cast as Annie, and Jamie Foxx who will play a modern reimagining of millionaire adoptive dad Daddy Warbucks called Benjamin Stacks.

The original Annie movie of 1982 saw Carol Burnett as the horrible Miss Hannigan who makes Annie and her friends' lives a misery.

Will Smith and Jay-Z will be acting as producers on the remake.

Cameron is currently busy filming romcom The Other Woman with Leslie Mann, Kate Upton and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
