It’s finally here!

Lifetime presents the remake of “Steel Magnolias” with an all-black cast.  The network enlisted a veritable list of all-stars including Queen Latifah (M’Lynn), Phylicia Rashad (Clairee), Alfre Woodard (Ouiser), Jill Scott (Truvy), Adepero Oduye (Annelle) and Condola Rashad (Shelby) for the remake, which is being directed by Stick Fly’s Kenny Leon and executive produced by Queen Latifah. Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of Lifetime Entertainment had this to say about the film:

“The caliber of talent associated with this film is astounding and falls in line with our strategy to make Lifetime a first stop for the industry’s best both in front of and behind the camera. Queen Latifah, Phylicia, Alfre, Jill, Adepero and Condola are some of the most celebrated women in music, film, television and stage — and we could not be more thrilled and honored for them to bring Robert Harling’s poignant story about the strength of women to a whole new generation.”

The film will premiere later this year on Lifetime. Check out the trailer:

  1. This is a smart weblog. I mean it. You’ve so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know the best way to make individuals rally behind it, certainly from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as large as what youre saying. Excellent job, indeed.

  2. This is goin to be GREAT…. I really hope they start remaking alotta other movies with an all
    Black cast… I loved the old steel Magnolias so I know this one is going to be bomb..
    I can’t wait to see the outcome. Now and Then would be a great remaake as well as an all
    Black cast for a new babysitters club series. There are plenty of all White cast movies that
    Would benefit from being made over with an all african american cast..
