Dolly Parton confirmed that a reboot of 9 to 5 is in the works.
The original cast (Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, and Lily Tomlin) has signed on for the new project. The original writer, Pat Resnick, is also working on the script with Rashida Jones, Deadline reports.
The iconic 1980 comedy deals with sexism and harassment in the workplace. Dolly said:
“I’ve been talking to Lily and Jane … Actually all these years, we’ve talked about doing a sequel to 9 to 5 and it never made any real sense until just recently.”
The country singer detailed that the script focuses on a new group of women who seek out the original trio for advice. The new film takes place when the original three have their own business.
