Dolly Parton Reveals Plot of '9 to 5' Movie Sequel
Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin will star in the upcoming sequel.
Can't wait for the sequel to 9 to 5? The long awaited follow up to the original 1980 movie starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin is said to begin filming this year.
At a recent talk at the Grammy Museum, Dolly Parton — who stopped by to celebrate the opening of her "Diamond in a Rhinestone World" Outfits Exhibit, which is on display there now — revealed exciting new details about the hotly anticipated sequel. “It’s a very interesting thought, how the hell are three old bags like you going to do a sequel for 9 to 5? We’re gonna call it 'Ninety-Five,' joked Parton in her discussion with producer Linda Perry, as Hello Giggles originally reported.
“They came up with the idea of these three girls still working at Consolidated, the company that we worked at years ago,” Parton shared. “They still have the same problems: the harassment and not getting paid properly, so these girls say, ‘Whatever happened to these three women that made so many great changes?’ So they find us, and we’re now three important women in our own businesses in different parts of the country.”

To tide us over until the release, you'll find us heading to the theater to catch Steel Magnolias for its limited-time 30th anniversary run. Here's to hoping we're tumbling out of of bed and stumbling to the kitchen — or at least humming that sooner than we think.
