PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Dolly Parton is busy filming a new movie that will feature her theme park at Christmas.
With the lights and cameras of a Hollywood production, Dollywood hosted the Lifetime Network as they filmed a movie with Dolly and some of her friends. Locals were cast as extras in the film and even some park guests got to see first hand.
"They've been able to sit and watch her act all day long. which is amazing, she's so talented so they'll be able to say that from now on I was in a movie with Dolly Parton," said Wes Ramey a spokesperson for Dollywood.
Dolly said she was asked several years ago to record the film and agreed to when she found time. Well now they're filming and working to have it completed by this holiday season.
"I'm not sure what their title is as of yet, but I know I'm going to be featured in it. I've got a lot of acting to do and I've written the music for some of the people that are going to be in the show," said Parton.
There's a few more scenes to be filmed before the final editing can begin.
