Lee Daniels Plans To Remake Terms Of Endearment With Oprah Winfrey

12 February 2017 1:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remakes, remakes, remakes. Oh, how they come and go in Hollywood. Barely a day goes by without one promised, one announced and one discarded, and today is no different. James L. Brooks’ Best Picture-winning 1983 directorial debut, Terms of Endearment, wasn’t necessarily clamoring for a remake, but by golly are we going to get one.

2 January 2017 7:35 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The half-decade long McConaissance has generally endured because Matthew McConaughey has chosen interesting directors to work with (Richard Linklater, William Friedkin, Lee Daniels, Jeff Nichols, Christopher Nolan, Jean-Marc Vallée, Martin Scorsese, Gus Van Sant, Stephan Gaghan) over blockbuster gigs.
