    The adorably big-busted country queen Dolly Parton is returning to the big screen after quite a lengthy absence. She will star alongside Queen Latifah in the feature Joyful Noise, which centers around two women who join forces to prevent a small-town gospel choir from shutting down. Aw, it's a feel good story.

    Latifah will play the mother of two teens who is put in charge of the Pacashau Gospel Choir after the death of its choir director, while Parton will appear as the choir director's widow who hopes to take over her late husband's job. Parton's last big screen role was in 1992, in the film Straight Talk. Dolly, you have been missed so welcome back.

    Should Parton and Latifah sing a duet together?
