TRAILER: Steel Magnolias Remake

Lifetime's all-black version appears to be an almost line-for-line remake of the original. The producers seem to be expecting big viewership from the gays:
"We believe the movie is about community ... and it's a community of all types who fit together by a commonality of family. Very much like the gay community. We think that there are a lot of elements that gay viewers can relate to, with these ladies hanging together, growing together and dealing with the eccentricities of life and the strength they must face when there is a death among them at such an early age."
Queen Latifah plays the scenery-chewing M'Lynn.
