Oscar® nominees Queen Latifah ("Chicago," "Hairspray") and Dolly Parton ("Transamerica," "Steel Magnolias," "Nine to Five") star in Alcon Entertainment's and Warner Bros. Pictures' "Joyful Noise," a funny and inspirational story of music, hope, love and renewal.
The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Sacred Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill (Latifah), stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow (Parton) thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old.
Shaking things up even more is the arrival of G.G.'s rebellious grandson, Randy (Jeremy Jordan). Randy has an ear for music, but he also has an eye for Vi Rose's beautiful and talented daughter, Olivia (Keke Palmer), and the sparks between the two teenagers are causing even more heat between G.G. and Vi Rose. If these two strong-willed women can overcome their differences and find a common voice, they-and their choir-may make the most joyful noise of all.
Starring with Latifah and Parton are Keke Palmer ("Akeelah and the Bee"), Courtney B. Vance ("Extraordinary Measures"), Jeremy Jordan (Broadway's "Rock of Ages"), and Kris Kristofferson ("Dolphin Tale"). Rounding out the main cast are Dexter Darden, Angela Grovey, Paul Woolfolk and Jesse L. Martin.
Todd Graff ("Bandslam") directed "Joyful Noise" from his original screenplay. The film is produced by Oscar® nominee Michael Nathanson ("L.A. Confidential"), Joseph Farrell, Catherine Paura, and Oscar® nominees Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove ("The Blind Side"). The executive producers are Timothy M. Bourne, Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere, with Yolanda T. Cochran and Steven P. Wegner serving as co-producers.
The behind-the-scenes team includes cinematographer David Boyd, production designer Jeff Knipp, editor Kathryn Himoff and costume designer Tom Broecker. Five-time Grammy Award winner Mervyn Warren composed the score.
The musically driven story also brings together the sounds of gospel, pop, country, rock and R & B with memorable songs, performed by the cast, from a wide range of artists, including Michael Jackson, Usher, Chris Brown, Paul McCartney, Sly & the Family Stone and Stevie Wonder. Dolly Parton also wrote original songs for the film, including "Not Enough (Love)" and "From Here to the Moon."
Alcon Entertainment presents a Farrell Paura Productions/O.N.C. Entertainment Production, "Joyful Noise," being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
