“Growing up in Nashville, I’ve loved Dolly since the moment I heard her magical voice and saw her luminous personality shine onstage.
Beyond her magnetic presence as an artist and performer, she is one of the greatest songwriters and storytellers of our time.
Her impact knows no bounds – as a musician, actor, writer, businesswoman, activist and all around incredible human being – Dolly Parton is not only an icon to me, but a true inspiration to women and girls everywhere.”
Though nothing has been confirmed in terms of casting, a release date or any other specifics, Dolly has said before that she wants to play the character of Ruthanna, the retired country music icon voiced by Dolly in the audiobook of the novel, so it’s likely we’ll get to see her on the big screen for this movie.
Of course, Dolly has starred in plenty of other movies before, including some absolute classics like 9 to 5, Steel Magnolias and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
