Queen Latifah, Jill Scott To Star In "Steel Magnolias" Remake

Queen Latifah and Jill Scott are among the cast in the Lifetime reboot.

Lifetime has assembled a cast for its remake of Steel Magnolias, a film which will be an "updated, contemporary TV adaptation of the play and 1989 film."

Among the members of the all-black cast are Queen Latifah and Jill Scott, along with Alfre Woodward, Phylicia Rashad, Adepero Oduye, and Condola Rashad.

According to deadline.com, Latifah will also executive produce the movie.

"Steel Magnolias chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana: M’Lynn (Queen Latifah), Ouiser (Woodard), Clairee (Phylicia Rashad), Truvy (Scott), Annelle (Oduye) and Shelby (Condola Rashad)," states the report. "Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children — and hair and nails — all the important topics that bring women together."

Steel Magnolias pairs Latifah with fellow executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, with whom she collaborated on the film adaptations of Chicago and Hairspray.

    This flick sounds like pure torture, but I'd peep it if it had a better line-up. Put Gabriel Union, Kerry Washington, Saana Lathan, Alicia Keys, Stacey Dash and Naomie Harris in a movie together and I'd get excited, even if it was some chick-flick bullshit.
