The classic '80s comedy "9 to 5" is getting a remake, and original stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda have shared their thoughts.

“9 to 5” is Getting a Reboot, and Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin Have Some Thoughts

If you’re a child of the 80s like me, then you probably have some serious love for the classic workplace comedy “9 to 5”. I mean, come on – Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin teaming up to take down their sexist boss? Cinematic gold!

Well, get ready, folks, because “9 to 5” is officially getting a remake, and it’s being produced by none other than Jennifer Aniston. That’s right, one of the OG “9 to 5” stars is bringing this story into the modern era, and I’ve got to say, I’m pretty intrigued to see how it all goes down.

Now, I know what you’re thinking – how do you improve on perfection, am I right? Well, according to Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, the original stars of “9 to 5”, it’s definitely going to be a challenge. But they’re still wishing Jennifer Aniston and the team all the best.

In a recent interview, Lily and Jane acknowledged that the issues addressed in the original film are “somewhat different” today. And they’re not wrong – when “9 to 5” first hit theaters in 1980, it was a rallying cry for women’s rights, shining a light on the rampant sexism and workplace inequality that was (let’s be real, still is) all too common.

But a lot has changed in the decades since then. While those core issues of gender discrimination and empowerment are still relevant, the specifics of how they manifest have evolved. So the remake is going to have to find a way to tackle these enduring problems through a modern lens.

And that’s not an easy task, my friends. But if anyone can pull it off, it’s the team behind this reboot. I mean, Jennifer Aniston has proven time and time again that she’s got serious chops when it comes to both comedy and drama. And with Lily and Jane’s stamp of approval, I have a feeling this remake is going to be something special.

One thing Lily and Jane are especially eager to see is how the new “9 to 5” will continue to inspire conversations about women’s rights and equality in the workplace. Because let’s be real – while we’ve made some progress since the 80s, there’s still a whole lot of work to be done.

The original film was groundbreaking in the way it shone a light on the very real struggles that working women faced, from sexist bosses to unequal pay to lack of opportunities for advancement. And it did it all with a healthy dose of humor and heart.

I have a feeling the remake is going to do the same, just with a contemporary twist. Maybe it’ll explore how things like the #MeToo movement and the fight for paid family leave have shifted the conversation around gender equality in the workplace. Or how the rise of female entrepreneurship is changing the game.

Whatever the angle, I’m just excited to see these beloved characters brought to life for a new generation. Because let’s be real – the issues at the heart of “9 to 5” are still painfully relevant today. And sometimes, the best way to tackle tough topics is through the lens of comedy.

Plus, with Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda’s blessing, I have a feeling this remake is going to capture the same spirit of camaraderie, empowerment, and just plain fun that made the original such a beloved classic. Honestly, I can’t wait to see what Jennifer Aniston and her team come up with.

So here’s to the “9 to 5” reboot! May it be a hilarious, heartwarming, and thought-provoking look at the ever-evolving fight for women’s rights in the workplace. And who knows – maybe we’ll even get a cameo from Dolly Parton herself. Now that would be the icing on the cake, wouldn’t it?
