The remake of the 1939 comedy The Women has gained more big name female stars in the form of Bette Midler, Cloris Leachman, Carrie Fisher, Lynn Whitfield, Joanna Gleason, Ana Gasteyer and Debi Mazar.
They join the already assigned cast of Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Candice Bergen.
According to Variety Diane English is directing this remake from the 1939 George Cukor directed original.
The film boasts an entirely female cast, just as the original did, and tells the story of a group of women who discover the pal they envied most is being cheated on by her husband.
If nothing else about this remake, at least it boasts some great names, and actually to be fair, at least it is an old enough film to even warrant a remake.
