There’s no denying that Steel Magnolias is a film classic. But who knew there’d been so much drama behind-the-scenes?!

Apparently, the film’s director Herbert Ross had a HUGE problem with 80’s ingenue Julia Roberts! Sally Field and Shirley MacLaine had a few things to say during the Target Presents AFI Night at the Movies event on Wednesday.

Filed under: TV NewsQueen Latifah

Queen Latifah is no stranger to success - after all they don't call her a queen for nothing. Which is why we weren't TOO surprised to learn that her televised remake of Steel Magnolias set some Lifetime records with 6.5 million people tuning in to see the made-for-television movie.

But that doesn't mean we aren't still VERY impressed by the astronomical success this movie has achieved.

Phew! That was a close one, wasn't it?

Victoria White, a producer of the 1989 classic Steel Magnolias, was apparently so upset about the Queen Latifah-starring remake premiering on Lifetime that she filed suit earlier this week claiming that because she was never notified about the new production, the network was in breach of contract!

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!

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!

Steel Magnolia's Remake: We Wanna Know Whyyy!?

Oh, tears spring to our eyes at the mere THOUGHT of Robert Harling's heart-wrenching love-filled drama that is Steel Magnolias!

And while we adore the new cast that make up the forthcoming Lifetime remake of the 1989 film, we must ask WHY remake such a classic, sentimental production?

But, originality is a dying art and we understand that twerks on original works can be just as powerful, if not more so, than their initial inspirations!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) for Tony nominee Kenny Leon's version of Steel Magnolias starring Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, and Adepero Oduye.

Obvi we will be glued to out televisions with an armament of kleenex on hand, whenever Lifetime decides to air this epic tale!
