Little Orphan Annie, the plucky redheaded star of Broadway musical and comic strip fame, has run out of tomorrows ---at least in print.The pop culture icon who sang and danced her way to international fame in the Broadway musical that gave us tunes such as "It's The Hard-Knock Life," and "Tomorrow," ended her decades-long run as a comic strip heroine on Sunday, June 13.
There's going to be an "Annie" remake this year. The movie isn't out until December, but Sony Pictures has already debuted the first trailer for the film starring Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, and Quvenzhané Wallis. You'll remember Wallis as the adorable actress from "Beasts of the Southern Wild" who became the youngest Oscar nominee last year. She's probably the brightest part of this trailer.
You may know about priority review vouchers (PRV).
Designed by Duke University economists as a means of encouraging drug development for unaddressed tropical diseases, PRVs were made law in 2007.
Essentially, they are transferrable go-to-the-front-of-the-regulatory-line “chits.” And they are awarded to companies that develop approved drugs for certain orphan diseases. Estimates of the financial value of these chits range from $200 million to well over half a billion dollars. They’re like golden tickets.
