Dolly Parton Says ‘9 to 5’ Movie Sequel Has Been Dropped
For years Dolly Parton has been talking about how she and her 1980 9 to 5 costars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda were working on a sequel but according to Dolly, that appears to be off the table.
While walking the red carpet for her recent Netflix Heartstrings premiere, Dolly told Entertainment Tonight, “I don’t think we’re going to do the sequel. We never could get the script where it was enough different than the first one, and that one turned out so good.”
However, she may still do a project with the two friends and actresses. She said, “We’re thinking we might do a completely different thing together, Jane, Lily and I. We may do something different altogether, but I don’t think we’ll continue with [the sequel].”
Meanwhile, Parton took to Instagram yesterday to tease that David Hasselhoff would be taking on the role of Franklin Hart on the 9 to 5 theater production in London. She posted with a video, “I’m so pleased that the wonderful @davidhasselhoff is joining the cast of @9to5themusicaluk in London as Franklin Hart Jr starting December 2! It’s going to be amazing. ”
