Deadline reports Rashida Jones is set to pen the script for an upcoming reboot of a 1980s classic. The actress will work alongside original screenwriter Patricia Resnick for a reboot of the 1980 farcical comedy 9 To 5. 20th Century Fox is in the early stages to develop this rebooted version that would “focus on three young women dealing with sexism and chauvinism in the workplace, who turn to the original trio for help in navigating and getting even with the course male higher-ups.”

Resnick and Jones are reportedly working together to find “a handle that can make the concept relevant to a young comedy audience.” The film will be produced by Shawn Levy, Resnick and Jonathan Baruch. Jones previously wrote the screenplay alongside Will McCormack for the 2012 romantic dramedy Celest & Jesse Forever. She also co-wrote the teleplay for the Black Mirror episode “Nosedive” alongside Michael Schur. She currently stars as Angie Tribeca in the titular TBS series and is best known for her portrayal of Ann Perkins in the comedy series Parks And Recreation. Her other film credits include I Love You Man, The Social Network and The Muppets.

Colin Higgins directed and co-wrote the original film with Resnick which starred the iconic trio of Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as three office workers who become fed up with their tyrannical and sexist boss as portrayed by Dabney Coleman. The veteran actresses are reportedly circling the new project which is fantastic news for fans of the original craving to witness the three talents working alongside each other once more.

The original 9 To 5 was a monstrous success at the box office, earning more than $103 million worldwide on a $10 million budget. A television spin-off series aired in the 1980s as well as a 2009 Broadway musical. Parton’s title song was also one of the biggest hit records of the decade and remains a mainstay at many karaoke bars.

A release date for the reboot has not been announced as of yet.
