What better timing for a new version of that hit, especially when original stars Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are eager for a reprise?

Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin starred in the award-winning comedy as secretaries who were sick and exhausted of their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" boss stealing their ideas, passing them over for promotions, and being an all-around jackass, so they joined forces to teach him a lesson. "We decided that we are going to do another one".

Emma Chambers, 'Vicar of Dibley' actress, dies at 53
Broadcaster Emma Freud , who is married to Curtis, was among one of the first to pay tribute to the couple's "beautiful friend". Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who grew up in Doncaster near Chambers, wrote: "I'm sad about Emma Chambers ".

In recent months, however, a revival has looked more likely, not least because of the climate of #MeToo has made 9 to 5's trailblazing theme of defying sexual harassment in the workplace even more relevant. The original followed employees of a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot who find a way to turn the tables on him.

"Back in 1980, in that movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot", Fonda began, then Tomlin interrupted, "and in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot".
