Nia Long Will Star in Lifetime’s Remake of the Classic Film “Beaches”!

Hollywood is going to give us a remake whether we like it or not! This time around, Lifetime is putting a modern-day spin on the classic 1988 film, Beaches, which starred Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.

Idina Menzel has already been cast as Midler’s character, CC, and Nia Long will star alongside her as Hillary.

Regardless of your generation, Beaches is a film that will make you cry no matter how many times you’ve watched it.

Menzel is known for her acting just as much as her singing, so we’re looking forward to her version of the classic song, “Wind Beneath My Wings.”

Even though a remake could possibly never touch the original, here’s to hoping Lifetime does this film correctly.

Filming has yet to begin and there’s no word on a premiere date.
