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!

Sex and the City Creator to Produce New Show!!!

Filed under: TV NewsSex & The City

Oh, Darren Star, looks like you may have found another goldmine!

The creator of Sex and the City is currently shopping around his new, bound-to-be-controversial dramedy television series Good Christian Bitches. In all honesty though, it’s not so much him shopping it around, as it is networks trying to purchase it from him.

Looks like ABC, NBC, and CBS are all after his show, which is being written by Robert Harling, the writing talent behind The First Wives Club and Steel Magnolias. The project is based on a book by author Kim Gatlin, and the pilot is being referred to as Desperate Housewives in Dallas.

The story revolves around Amanda Vaughn, a recent divorcee who moves with her children to Dallas and gets involved in the wonderful world of botox, gossip, and fraud.

Well Darren, looks like you’ve got some decisions to make. To go to ABC, or not to go to ABC…

If you can turn this project into even one-fourth of the phenomenon that Sex and the City was/is, then you should be in perfect shape for your next project, whether it be Good Jewish Bitches, Good Muslim Bitches, or even Good Scientologist Bitches.

What network do U think Darren Star should go for?
