A 9 to 5 sequel is in the works with the original cast

Jane Fonda has confirmed that a sequel to 1980’s 9 to 5 is in the works. Fonda will be back, along with Dolly Parton and Lily Tomlin.

“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.”

The original film followed three working women who live out their fantasies of getting even with, and their overthrow of, the company’s autocratic, “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” boss, played by Dabney Coleman.

EW had the news that Fonda suggested that the sequel could explore how technology and corporate voyeurism have complicated modern-age workplace dynamics, adding that it will take place at the same office of Consolidated Companies.

“I’m sorry to say the situation is worse today,” she said. “Today a lot of the workforce is hired by an outside company. Who do you talk to if you have a problem?

Earlier this year Rashida Jones was attached to co-write a script with original screenwriter Patricia Resnick.
