Queen Latifah’s New Partner Is Dolly Parton?

Submitted by on August 23, 2010 – 10:31 am9 Comments

Queen Latifah is set to join Dolly Parton soon to film upcoming family flick, Joyful Noise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter via MTV.com, the musical royalty (hip-hop and country, respectively) will play a pair of ladies who work to stop the closure of a scrappy gospel choir.

Latifah will portray the mother of a couple of teenagers who takes the reins of the Pacashau Gospel Choir after the choir leader dies. Parton will play the late choir director’s wife who is gunning for the chance to helm the singing group. The country diva and jazz/pop/hip-hop mogul may also bust out a few tunes together in the film.

Dolly Parton hasn’t had a leading role since 1992′s Straight Talk; the country music queen is best known for her appearances in classic 80s films Nine To Five and Steel Magnolias. Queen Latifah was seen most recently co-starring with Common in this year’s Just Wright, and early next year will star in The Dilemma alongside Channing Tatum, Winona Ryder and Jennifer Connelly (directed by Ron Howard).

Joyful Noise will be distributed by Warner Brothers/Alcon Entertainment.
