Queen Latifah & Lifetime's Steel Magnolias Legal Drama!

Oh dear!

It seems that Lifetime's re-imagining of Herbert Ross' 1989 emotional classic Steel Magnolias is getting some legal backlash from the original's executive producer, Victoria White!

White is claiming that Sony Pictures, Lifetime Entertainment and A&E Television Networks did NOT contact her about her rights to the property, and is suing over breach of contract, good faith and fair dealing.

White wants injunctive relief before the October 7th premiere of the made-for-tv version, which stars the venerated Queen Latifah as M'Lynn.

We hope this nasty legal mess doesn't postpone Steel Magnolias' Lifetime debut! While we adore the original, we can't wait to see this whole new take on a beloved classic!

And obviously, anything starring The Queen is an instant delight!

Little House On The Prairie Moving To The Big Screen?!

little-house-on-the-praire-film.jpg

Well hey y'all!

It seems that the 1970's television series Little House on the Prairie starring Dancing With The Stars contestant Melissa Gilbert as adorable Laura Ingalls, may be coming to a big screen near you!

OK well, not the series per say, but a film based on the semi-autobiographical books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, which follow the day to day lives of the Ingalls family in the 19th century American West!

Sony Pictures is considering making the beloved children's classics into a feature project written by Abi Morgan (Iron Lady), directed by David Gordon Green (The Sitter), which may include plot points from all 9 books in the series.

Sounds like some high falutin' fun to us!

Sabrina the Teenage Witch has grown from the Archie comic book series to on-screen cartoon, to real life sitcom teen, and now?

An edgy, superhero-esque origin film with black cat Salem at the witch’s side!

Eeee! What about Aunts Hilda and Zelda??? And Harvey?? We hope they won’t get chopped from the story!

And will she get a superhero costume? HOH man we can’t wait to see THAT!

whitney houston movie getting released

This may be difficult to watch, but it will be nice to get one last opportunity to see Whitney on the big screen!

Last month, we got a first look at Whitney Houston in her upcoming movie Sparkle (above), and we were pleased to see that she was looking REALLY good. Sigh.

As we mentioned before, the movie is a remake of the 1976 film about a group of singing sisters.

Whitney had said the following about the movie at the time:
