Lifetime releases a new trailer for its upcoming all-black remake of 1989 Steel Magnolias. The cast of the remake features Queen Latifah (who is also the executive producer) as M’Lynn, Alfre Woodard as Ouiser, Phylicia Rashad as Clairee, Jill Scott as Truvy, Adepero Oduye as Annelle and Rashad’s daughter, Condola Rashad as Shelby.

The original Steel Magnolias starred Sally FieldDolly PartonShirley MacLaineDarryl HannahOlympia Dukakis, and Julia Roberts. Steel Magnolias is one of my all-time favorite movies and I can’t wait to see this remake.

The all-black Steel Magnolias cast is directed Kenny Leon (ABC‘s A Raisin in The Sun, Broadway’s Fences and The Mountaintop).
