Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah Unite in ‘Joyful Noise’

Todd Graff's upcoming choir drama Joyful Noise has landed two musical luminaries in Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. This casting news comes from Variety, who also note that the film will be distributed through Warner Bros.' Alcon Entertainment.

Graff, who wrote and directed last year's well-received Bandslam, has written his own screenplay for Joyful Noise, a story that centers on two very busy and strong-willed women forced to save a small town gospel choir after budget cuts threaten to shut it down. Queen Latifah is set to play the new head of the choir, a working mom forced into the position after the choir director suffers an untimely death. Dolly Parton will play Queen's nemesis of sorts, starring as the original choir director's widow; a woman who thought she was next in line for the job but is pushed aside. Working together, they grow to understand what the choir means to the community and help raise the money needed to keep it flourishing.
