Dolly Parton Will Duet with Queen Latifah in Upcoming Movie
Watch out for a new dynamic duo!
Legendary country singer, Dolly Parton will return to the big screen to duet with Queen Latifah in the feature “Joyful Noise.” This will be her first major feature, since 1992′s “Straight Talk.”
In the movie that tells a story about two women joining forces together to prevent a small-town gospel choir from shutting down, Parton will appear as the choir director’s widow who hopes to take over her late husband’s job. While Latifah will play the mother of two teens who is put in charge of the Pacashau Gospel Choir after the death of its choir director.
Todd Graff is writing and directing the musical-driven movie for Warners-based Alcon Entertainment. He’s a quite experienced man at putting music on film, having written and directed 2003′s teen musical “Camp” and last year’s battle-of-the-bands movie “Bandslam.” The movie will start its production next year.
The 64-year-old “Jolene” singer made her mark on screen with such ’80s movies as “Nine to Five” and “Steel Magnolias.” Her future co-star, 40-year-old Latifah, was an Oscar nominee for “Chicago.” The rapper was most recently seen in Fox Searchlight’s “Just Wright.”
Good luck for the project, both!
