Hollywood is working on a reboot of the classic comedy “9 to 5,” with Rashida Jones being courted to star. Reports had claimed that original stars Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Jane Fonda also wanted in on the project, and now Dolly has confirmed that they are raring to go.
“All these years we’ve talked about doing a sequel to ‘9 to 5’ and it never made any real sense until just recently,” she told ABC News’ “Nightline,” citing the current #MeToo and TimesUp movements. “We decided that we are going to do another one. We are trying to get the script and all that, everyone is very interested and we’ve all agreed that we’d love to do it if it’s right.”
The new film will focus on three new women, who search OUT the original trio after they suffer workplace harassment. But Dolly warns that if it takes to long to write there may be an issue. She jokes, “I told them we better get after it or it’s going to be 95 instead of ‘9 to 5.’”
