Steel Magnolias

Movies are meant to be entertainment for the masses, but sometimes result in vicious lawsuits that almost kept some of our favorite films out of theaters. The long-awaited remake of Steel Magnolias, starring Queen Latifah, is under attack by a producer for the original film who claims she was not consulted about the remake. She's asking a judge to stop the film's October 7 release unless she's paid a lump cash sum and a share of the profits.
