Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda are planning to star in a sequel to their 1980 comedy 9 to 5. Fonda revealed plans for the trio to team up for a modern revival. “My role is as an executive producer, and I’m working with the writers, with Lily, and talking to the writers,” Fonda told reporters at the Television Critics Association panel. “Right now, Dolly, Lily and I are all intending to be in it.” Rumors of a remake swirled earlier this year when it was revealed that Rashida Jones and the original screenwriter, Patricia Resnick, teamed up to co-write a script. No word on when production for 9 to 5 will begin. In the meantime, Parton has several major projects in the works. Parton’s production company, Dixie Pixie Productions, has teamed up with Warner Bros. Television and Netflix to create eight original films based on her music. The films are set to air on Netflix in 2019.
