A remake of the 1975 cult classic Mahogany is reportedly in the works, according to BET.
The iconic movie starred legendary diva Diana Ross as Tracy, a Chicago native who dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
Tracy eventually realizes her dreams and relocates to Rome, where she struggles to balance her relationship with a hometown boyfriend Brian (played by Billy Dee Williams) and her skyrocketing career.
Suzanne de Passe, a longtime Motown executive and producer, will be resurrecting the film which was originally directed by Berry Gordy.
Who do you think would best fill Ross’s designer shoes?
