Columbia Pictures is bringing Aline Brosh McKenna onboard to rewrite its Annie remake.

Emma Thompson penned a previous draft of the musical, which is being produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z.

The hip-hop take on the little orphan that spawned a comic strip, a Broadway musical and a 1982 film still has no director attached.

Smith's daughter Willow Smith is starring in Annie.

Brosh McKenna, who is best known for adapting Lauren Weisberger's best-seller The Devil Wears Prada, also penned We Bought a Zoo, I Don't Know How She Does It and Morning Glory.

She is repped by CAA.
