Jennifer Aniston's production company plans to reboot '9 to 5'

(SOUNDBITE OF DOLLY PARTON'S "9 TO 5")

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning, I'm A Martínez. Jennifer Aniston is pouring herself a cup of ambition. Her production company plans to reboot the 1980 classic film "9 To 5."

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "9 TO 5")

DOLLY PARTON: (Singing) Working 9 to 5. What a way to make a living.

MARTÍNEZ: The original starred Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as secretaries seeking revenge against their sexist boss. It made more than $100 million at the box office, so expectations will be high for the new version. But how they reboot that great theme song is beyond me.

An earlier headline misspelled Jennifer Aniston's last name as Anniston, and a previous web introduction misspelled Lily Tomlin's first name as Lilly.
