0 'Steel Magnolias' is Being Remade, with a Twist

Steel Magnolias

A new version of Steel Magnolias is reportedly being made...

And now a remake is in the works with a notable twist: the all-white cast will be replaced with an all-black cast.

The Lifetime movie is to be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the duo responsible for the new "Footloose" remake that opens Friday, who are busy reaching out to some of the top black actresses in Hollywood.

So this is the brilliant idea of those responsible for the unnecessary new Footloose movie—yep, it's all making sense now. I'm all about a good weekend marathon of made-for-TV movies, but in this case, there's no reason to mess with the original. Hopefully it won't turn into another Queen Latifah's Barbershop of awfulness.

I can hear old Ouiser Boudreaux now: "I don't see movies 'cause they're trash."
