Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton set to make Joyful Noise
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
At first, hearing that Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton would be starring in a movie together might seem odd, but it actually makes sense. Both of them were pioneers in their respective music genres and both have done somewhat well with their movie careers. So them teaming up on a gospel-choir feature makes perfect sense. The two voluptuous ladies will star in JOYFUL NOISE for director Todd Graff. The film is about two strong-willed women who have to work together after budget cuts threaten their gospel choir. Latifah will play the choir director that takes over after a death and Parton will play the widow of the former director that thought she was in line for the position.
I recently saw, for the first time, 9 TO 5 and thought Dolly Parton was really good in the role. I haven’t seen her in much else, but between that and Latifah’s turn in CHICAGO, I think this could be a decent film.
