We’re excited for Dumplin and can’t wait to see it on the big screen. We’re even more excited knowing that Dolly Parton is going to be a part of the film.
If you are familiar with the book, you know that Willowdean is a huge fan of Dolly’s. She’s her idol. You know, We can’t blame her either cause like Dollywood is fabulous and everyone should go and visit it at least once in their life.
Parton confirmed that she was working on the film.
“Yes I am,” Parton confirmed to EW, “She’s producing and starring in a movie called Dumplin’ and it was a best-selling book and in the book this girl that’s the character was a Dolly fan and loved her music.”
She continued “So I’m working with Jennifer on that and a soundtrack album and so I’m excited about that.”
What does Julie Murphy have to say about it? The thing is that is the reaction that we were most looking forward to, because like – she’s amazing and we can’t imagine what it’s like to have your book come to life. Murphy took to Twitter to speak about it.
We know that we’d be through the roof. Having Dolly as part of Dumplin’ makes us even more excited for the film!
No word on a release date for Dumplin‘ yet.
