It’s back to work and shenanigans for Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda who are all “intending” to return for a 9 to 5 sequel. The original film, which was released in 1980, was considered ahead of its time when it had the three leading ladies turn the tables on their sexist boss. Fonda confirmed the news at a panel discussion about her new HBO documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts.
“My role is as an executive producer, and I’m working with the writers, with Lily, and talking to the writers,” she said.
So does Fonda think the workplace has changed a lot since the 1980’s for women?
“I’m sorry to say the situation is worse today. Today a lot of the workforce is hired by an outside company. Who do you talk to if you have a problem?”
