Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin reunite for modern '9 to 5' remake
One of country singer Dolly Parton’s most famous songs is the working woman’s anthem, “9 to 5.” Recently she collaborated with Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda to remake the comedy where the song comes from.
Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin are all original cast members of the 80s comedy “9 to 5.”
In light of the #MeToo movement and equal pay protests, Dolly feels that a remake is relevant in modern times.

The trio has been in talks for years about making a sequel, but the timing just never felt right although Dolly admitted that they have agreed to make it if the script is done correctly.
The plot of the film revolves around younger women who ask the original cast for advice. Dolly, Lily, and Jane play executives of a consulting agency who young women come to find out how to run their own business.

These claims have been supported by Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, but Twentieth Century Fox has not confirmed anything yet.
Jane Fonda went further in her confirmation by pointing at how the modern trend of outsourcing means that workers have nobody to complain to. She then went on to say how the sequel needs to address workplace issues like these.

THE TRIO TRUMPS TRUMP
Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda attended the Emmy Awards last year where they presented the award for best supporting actor in a limited series or movie.
Before they announced the winner, they made a speech. In the speech, they took jabs at President Trump and likened him to their awful boss in “9 to 5.”
They called the president out for being a liar, hypocritical, and bigoted. They also referred to him as egotistical and sexist.
