This is an interesting twist.
Lifetime will be remaking Steel Magnolias (the 1989 movie starring Sally Field, Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts) and will be giving the movie an all-black cast.
Kenny Leon, the director of the 2008 ABC movie A Raisin in the Sun, will be directing this version in which the movie will be set in Louisiana and will be set among a group of women in present day.
The 1989 version is pretty flawless so it will be hard to remake such a classic.
We wish them all the luck though!
