‘Steel Magnolias’ Remake Gets A Trailer [Video]
The Steel Magnolias remake is one step closer to reality. Lifetime released the first trailer for the new movie, which stars Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad and Alfre Woodard.
Lifetime made headlines earlier this year when it announced that it was going to remake the classic 1989 movie (which starred Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah, Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, and Olympia Dukakis) with an all-black cast.
Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of Lifetime Entertainment, said in a statement:
“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 new film follows the lives of six Louisiana women. The movie is based on the play by Robert Harling, which was made famous when it was adapted into a movie in 1989.
