and the legendary country icon Dolly Parton
seem like an unlikely couple, but the two are teaming up for a film according to The Hollywood Reporter
Dolly Parton is returning to the big screen to duet with Queen Latifah in the feature "Joyful Noise," which centers around two women who join forces to prevent a small-town gospel choir from shutting down.
This will be Dolly Parton's first return to film since 1992. Of course Latifah is a bonafide actress and Oscar nominee. Here is the dish on their characters:
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, while Parton will appear as the choir director's widow who hopes to take over her late husband's job.
Sounds like a fun film, but I love the idea of Parton and Latifah teaming up. This will bring together two opposite fan bases for the both of them!
