Bridesmaids actress Rose Byrne is in talks to join the big screen update of the musical, Annie.

Quvenzhane Wallis, Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz have already joined the project with The Hollywood Reporter saying Byrne is considering the role of Grace.

Jamie Foxx is set to play the Daddy Warbucks character who will be called Benjamin Stacks in this version.

He is the rich businessman who takes in the orphan and Grace is his assistant. Diaz will play the orphanage boss, Miss Hannigan.

The original Annie musical was set in during the US depression but this Jay-Z and Will-Smith produced update is set in modern times.

The film will be directed by Will Gluck and is set for release at the end of 2014.
