‘9 to 5’ Reboot Happening with Original Writer and Possibly Rashida Jones

Posted by February 28, 2018 Comment

There are few films that exist with the ferocious charm of 9 to 5, an ahead-of-its-time comedic farce tale of women in an office workplace. Still relevant today, the 1980 flick was launched into classic status with the help of an amazing cast and a catchy tune.

Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox is speaking to original 9 to 5 writer Patricia Resnick, who supposedly will be teaming with actress/writer Rashida Jones to pen a new script.

Theoretically, this new take will more than likely deal with some of the current socio-political climate in the wake of the ongoing #MeToo movement, as well as the #TimesUp offshoot.

The original film starred Lily TomlinJane Fonda, and Dolly Parton as three women completely fed up with their asshole bosses. There are dream sequences featured where the women take their righteous revenge upon the ‘man’, eventually taking over the boss positions.

While Deadline also alludes to the possibility of the original cast returning for a remake, there is nothing in their write up to confirm.

We’ll let you know as more information about this project gets released and/or confirmed.
