Lee Daniels Reveals Plans For An ‘Empire’ Spin-Off And A ‘Terms of Endearment’ Remake Starring Oprah Winfrey!

Hollywood, Hollywood News

That Terms of Endearment remake that Lee Daniels is going to do with Oprah Winfrey? Turns out it’ll be a complete makeover.

The Empire co-creator offered plot details at Loyola Marymount’s Hollywood Masters series with THR‘s Stephen Galloway on March 22, revealing that the film — still uncast, except for Winfrey in the Shirley MacLaine role — will be set in the ’80s and include a storyline about black men who brought HIV/AIDS to their female partners.

“I’ve got to tell stories that are important to me, and so many African-American women died,” said Daniels. “I want to make Flap [played by Jeff Daniels in the 1983 film] gay and infect the Debra Winger character. And then we explore the ’80s in a different way.”

Other tidbits: Daniels announced his Empire spinoff will be Las Vegas-set and revealed that he’s begun therapy. “They say it works,” he mused. “I’ll find out.”
