Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah to make 'Joyful Noise'
Here she comes again - country singer Dolly Parton is returning to the big screen in a new movie musical with Queen Latifah.
In the upcoming "Joyful Noise," the pair star as two women hoping to stop a small-town gospel choir from shutting down.
Forty-year-old Latifah, who earned an Oscar nomination for "Chicago," will play a mother of two who heads up the Pacashau Gospel Choir following the choir director's death, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Parton, 64, plays the choir director's widow, who also wants her late husband's job.
The music legend, who appeared in hit '80s films like "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," "9 to 5" and "Steel Magnolias," hasn't made a major motion picture since the 1992 comedy "Straight Talk."
In July, she hinted to Entertainment Weekly that she had a project in the pipeline, saying, "I might even possibly do a movie soon... I don't want to say what it is yet, but I've got a real good offer, and if it comes through, I'll probably start a movie in October to have a movie out next year."

I go to Gatlinburg every summer and spend about half my time in Pigeonforge in hopes that I actually run into Dolly. I've been to Dollywood and a couple of her little shops. I just LOVE DOLLY!!!!!
Dolly and the "Queen" are OK in my book; both very talented. This should be a very good movie, looking forward to seeing it. Their private life is their own business (only owe the public a good performance).
Hey, between the two of them they'll beat all these 3D movies by going DDDD 🙂
Dolly is Thee Voice and a TRUE angel in every respect. Love Queen Latifah also. This should be a great,even touching movie!! LOVE YOU DOLLY!!
I love, love, love both Dolly and Queen. I'm really hoping this turns out well. They are amazingly talented women.
She never forgot her roots. Three thousand songs, seven Grammy awards, and countless other industry awards later, Dolly continues to give back to the town that started her career (she was appearing regularly on WSEV radio in Sevierville before she was ten years old).
In addition to giving tourism a major boost, Dolly’s landmark literacy program, The Imagination Library, has given books to every child in Sevier County from birth until kindergarten, since it began in 1996. The Imagination Library has now expanded to include many US States as well as parts of the UK and Canada. Dolly has also been a major supporter of healthcare in Sevier County. She is the honorary chairperson of The Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation, named for the doctor who delivered Dolly and helped establish adequate healthcare facilities in Sevier County. Today, this organization carries on Dr. Thomas’ goal of improving the range and quality of healthcare available for Sevier County citizens. Dolly has helped make possible many new facilities and services including The Dolly Parton Birthing Unit at Fort Sanders Sevier Medical Center, which has provided top quality care for many years, and the new Dolly Parton Center for Women’s Services, which will soon be under construction.
Dolly is an Angel!
Dolly Parton is a class act from start to finish - Not only is she a talented performer and a smart businesswoman, but she also gives back to the community through her literacy foundation which is now in almost all 50 states and in several European countries. We need more celebrities like her. I have seen her in concert and she also gives one of the best
all around performances I have seen - genuine and sincere.
Larry and Peaches you are both in the right place here! Where I am not a fan of country, this lady has contributed in so many ways to so many people that the trolls here have no way of keeping up. I would firmly support this if only to have another way for Dolly and Queen Latifah to give back. They are fine examples in a world of bad ones.
Big boobs! Who cares! New movie, Who cares. Yuck on both women.
This is a fine combination of two very talented women. I think it will be great and I can't wait to see this film. If you don't like the stars don't see the movie. End of discussion.
didnt they have a movie similar to this already with cuba gooding jr and beyonce "fighting temptations"
I am a female, and I would love to motorboat Dolly! it is too bad her breasts take attention off of the fact she is a very talented woman and is responsible for so many hits over the years.
I wouldn't go see Dolly Parton if she was free, and right in my back yard.
I am sure that she REALLY cares, this woman has more heart, talent and money than you could ever hope for Ms.T(H)ate. Somehow I think that your comment won't affect the overall quality of her life, Have a Good Afternoon.
COUNTRY + HIPHOP = EARACHES AND TERRIBLE GAGGING REPERCUSSIONS!
Let em "gag" on THIS!
It'll be a Big Breast Bonanza!
rotflmao!!! that was funny!!!
I will buy a ticket. If someone writes an original song for the soundtrack, we're talking Oscar bait.
Sorry, when I think of both of them I think big BOOBS.
Wow, speaking of big boobs!
Go to Wikipeadia – do a search on Queen Latifah – SHE'S HAD BREAST **REDUCTION** SURGERY – DUH !!!!!!!!!!!
Two of my faves – nice going, ladies!
You know you want to hear them do an update of "Ebony and Ivory"... don't even try to deny it.
How old is Dolly, 106?
Who cares? She still looks – and sounds – fabulous!
It clearly states in the article that she is 64.
thank you, innovativefx – yes the article clearly states her age.
I've always found BOTH Ladies extremely classy and I've greatly admired their musical, movie and TV work. Anyone who doesn't (kittybling – talkin' to you here –) has no idea the range both women are capable of. For Example – Dolly is NOT country only. Neither is Queen Latifah hiphop only. (No country in "9-5" or hiphop in "Chicago", honey!!!!)
Biography Channel just showcased Dolly – amazing woman!! I'll be looking forward to Queen Latifah's biography next.....
As for the "gentlemen" here with their references to "boobs" – I guess that's all you can see – you can't HEAR their amazing voices, can you?
I love Queen's hair! I dunno if the movie will be good but I would go see it.
Hmmmmm, it's long been rumored that each of these women is a lesbian. Wonder if they will hook up. Don't get me wrong, I'm not down on lesbians at all. I will def go see this musical.
OK, I am not the only one who just had that thought (well the hooking up is kinda far-fetched..?) but who cares??
Oh it will all be joyful until Queen Latifah pulls a knife! I here she doesn't like being on the bottom.
does anybody hear a vuvuzela?
I got your vuvuzela right here! blow this!
This is an interesting pairing.Like both women.
