Exactly! Everybody digs them both, so we're happy that we can bring you guys an official clip from the upcoming remake of Steel Magnolias, starring the Queen herself!

Helmed by the Lifetime Channel, the movie, which tells the story of six Louisiana women who come together to deal with tragedy and difficult times, will also be starring Condola Rashad and Phylicia Rashad.

We've seriously been jonesing for some new Queen Latifah material for awhile now, and we're pumped to see what she can do with the role.

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!

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!

Steel Magnolias To Be Remade With All-Black Cast

steel-magnolias-to-be-remade.jpg

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!
