Actress Queen Latifah is the latest addition slated to partake in the remake of the 1989 classic film/play Steel Mongolias. 

The rest of the cast features Jill Scott, Alfre Woodward, Phylicia Rashad, Adepero Oduye, and Condola Rashad.

The Lifetime network will be producing the film which is said to be an an "updated, contemporary TV adaptation of the play and 1989 film."

"Steel Magnolias chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana".

Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy's beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children — and hair and nails — all the important topics that bring women together."

No timetable has been announced for the debut of the project.
