Annie director auctions walk-on part

Jay Z and Will Smith are giving a fan the chance to appear as an extra in their upcoming remake of classic musical Annie by auctioning off the part.

The film, directed by Will Gluck and produced by the 99 Problems rapper and the Men in Black star, features Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx and is expected to be in cinemas for Christmas, 2014.

Bids for the small role on auction website CharityBuzz have already reached $4,600 and are expected to reach $10,000 by the time the auction closes on 11 October (13).

Proceeds from the sale will go to Shaking With Laughter, a charity funding research into Parkinson's disease.
