‘Long Walk’ wailer Jill Scott has long seen herself playing double duty in Hollywood – balancing rocking mics with rocking movies. Adding another notch to that growing list of multitasking is the Lifetime-presented remake of ‘Steel Magnolias’ (Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad), the 1989 ‘chick flick’ classic starring Sally Fields, Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts.
Despite facing a lawsuit from the original’s producer (threatening to halt the movie‘s airing this Sunday), news has surfaced that the project is moving full speed ahead. As originally scheduled, you can catch it on Lifetime this Sunday, October 7th @ 9p EST.
Until then, see Scott sing the praises of the movie and her co-stars above.
