A report by Deadline on Thursday said that a reboot of the legendary female-empowerment comedy 9 to 5 is in the works. On Thursday night’s episode of ABC News’ Nightline, Dolly Parton told ABC’s David Wright that she and her co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are all on board for the new movie.
“I would always say, ‘I don’t chew my tobacco but once, let’s don’t mess up a good thing, let’s don’t try to redo9 to 5,’ but this new idea looked like it was gonna bring some new girls in,” Parton told Wright on Nightline. “And they’re gonna find us…the old characters — we’ve all come up with a business of our own — so they come to find us to get some input on how they should help run the business.”
And just for fun, here’s Dolly’s video from the first “9 To 5.”
