Nia Long To Star In A Beaches Remake Along With Idina Menzel

November 17, 2016  |  

If you’re a woman of the 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s, you know a little something about the movie Beaches. Even if you haven’t seen it, you know that it’s a tearjerker, a tale of friendship and loss. And while it’s beloved in the hearts of many, Lifetime has decided to remake it with a few familiar faces.


Nia Long and Idina Menzel star as lifelong friends in the new Beaches. 

According to the press release from Lifetime, the remake:

“follows the serendipitous meeting of two young girls on the Venice Boardwalk, who, though worlds apart in lifestyle, embark on unexpected and lifelong friendship. CC (Menzel) is an aspiring singer trying to make it in Los Angeles until she is discovered by a director who gives her her first big shot. Hillary (Long) is the daughter of a prominent civil rights lawyer who struggles to find her own destiny. Their friendship—even with its ups and downs—sustains them for decades.”

The movie is set to premiere on Lifetime on Saturday January 21 at 8 p.m.
