Country music star Dolly Parton plans to hit the big screen with actress Queen Latifah in an upcoming Warner Brothers production, according to new reports.
The 64-year-old will star in Joyful Noise about a widow asked to take over her late husband’s choir ensemble, Pop Eater reports.
Dolly, although best known for her vocal cords, has starred in numerous films – her last one dating back to the 2005 sequel Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous alongside Sandra Bullock.
Both Dolly and Queen Latifah, 40, share a love for singing on the big screen.
Queen Latifah was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in the musical Chicago in 2002.
