New ‘Steel Magnolias’ with All Black Cast Releases Trailer (Video)

The new all African American cast of "Steel Magnolias".

The 1989 classic, Steel Magnolias, that included, Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah, Shirley McClaine and Olympia Dukakis.  But now their roles are being reprised in a 2012 version that we reported in the EUR back in August.  And as reported, the cast has been changed just a little bit.

The new cast includes M’Lynn (Queen Latifah), Ouiser (Alfre Woodard), Clairee (Phylicia Rashad), Truvy (Jill Scott), Annelle (Adepero Oduye) and Shelby (Condola Rashad).  Condola Rashad is Phylicia Rashad’s daughter that is making her splash into film with the pivotal role in the remake.

The film will hit Lifetime on October 7, but we can finally get a peek at the film on the new trailer that has been released.  Some are scared of classic films and music remakes, but with this powerhouse cast the film just cannot fail!  It looks like they reprise the roles with new flavor, but due homage is paid to the talents of the old cast.

Check it out!
