Remaking older movies to have an all black cast

Im watching TV and just saw a preview for a remake of Steel Magnolias, same exact movie but with an all black cast.

Will you check it out? Have you seen the previews?

Do you believe if a movie with an all black cast was remade to have an all white cast, that this would go over well?

This doesn't bother me, I do find it really odd though and thought I'd bring it here for discussion, so share your thoughts.

I find it really odd also. I hate when people just can't leave movies alone. They always remake them and "try" to make them better. Kind of annoying.

I refuse to watch any of these "remakes" due to the fact I like the originals! Footloose, Steel Magnolias, what's next When Harry Met Sally? No, no, no!!!!!

I am tired of remakes in general.  And yes, it would be the end of the world if it was the other way around.

I don't care for "re-makes" either.  I like originals regardless of color.  To re-make a movie just to change the race is like throwing racism in the public's face. I'm sure if someone wanted to take a movie like Roots or The Color Purple and flipped the races around, the black community would shut those down in a heartbeat.

I won't be watching it. I love the original and don't want to see the black remake. In my opinion they can't make it any better and doing an all black cast isn't gonna do it.

I love the original. But the new on does have a great cast so if I catch it, I will watch it. I do agree that we have gone to far with the re-makes. Especially doing so and changing the entire race in the movie. I definately believe if it were reversed and a white cast re-making an original all black cast, it would not go over well.
