UPDATE 7:04 P.M. EST: SIKE! Dionne Warwick tells The Hollywood Reporter that Lady GaGa WILL star in her biopic. Apparently, her music reps knew about the project and NOT her film reps. Warwick says:

"It is just a question of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing… I'm waiting now for an email from either her and or management letting me know that all the retractions that have been tracted will be retracted."

Glad this is cleared up!


Well, that's awkward.

On Friday, R&B legend Dionne Warwick announced her own upcoming biopic Dionne at the Cannes Film Festival!

At the event, Warwick revealed she would be played by Destiny's Child alum LeToya Luckett, noting the film would also star Olympia Dukakis, Danny Glover, and Lady GaGa — who was signed to play Dionne's "musical nemesis" Cilla Black!

And if the casting of GaGa as the English singer sounded too good to be true, it's because it WAS!

Queen Latifah's Steel Magnolias Confirms Premiere!

Oh! And it's MUCH sooner than we expected!

Tony nominee Kenny Leon's remake of the 1989 emotional drama Steel Magnolias starring Queen Latifah, Condola Rashad, Alfre Woodard, Jill Scott, Adepero Oduye, and Phylicia Rashad, will air on Lifetime this October 7th!

This cult film — originally starring Julia Roberts, Sally Fields, Dolly Parton, Shirly MacLaine, Daryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis — centers around a group of Louisiana women who habitually come together at a local salon. The story explores the importance of friendship in the face of life's great tragedies.

We're VERY excited to see this modern take on such a beloved classic… and we instantly adore any film featuring The Queen!

Although we're not sure if Q. Latifah can deliver Sally Field's "Whyyyyyy" cry in quite the same fashion…

Ha!
