Dolly Parton says a "9 to 5" sequel is well on its way.
The country music legend said, "We are supposed to have the first scripts in our hands within days.
"Of course, we will have to see what our thoughts are, and it will have to be rewritten a time or two, I'm sure. Hopefully, we might get a chance to start that in the new year. But it's going to really be good — after all these years, they finally came up with something that makes sense and was worthwhile to do."
Parton explained that the new plot examines "three younger women working at the same Consolidated Companies, and these three girls try to figure out who these women were who made all these changes years ago."
"They find us, and I am sure it will have a lot of comedy and cover some issues that still need to be touched on, but in a fun, new way."
The original starred Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.
