Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin Lined Up for TWO Movies After “Grace and Frankie,” Unrelated to Netflix Hit


Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are so popular in their Netflix sitcom, they’re making not one but two movies when they wrap the 7th and final season this winter.

But here’s the twist: the movies have nothing to do with “Grace and Frankie.”

The first film is called “Moving On,” with Paul Weitz directing them with Malcolm McDowell and Richard Roundtree. Jane and Lily play old friends who reunite at a funeral and have take down an old mutual foe (McDowell) with the help of “Shaft.” Sounds great.

The other film for these dynamo actresses comes after “Moving On” and has an all star cast. But I’ve been sworn to secrecy for the time being. Trust me, it’s good.

Jane and Lily first collaborated, with Dolly Parton, on “Nine to Five” in 1982. They just keep rocking. PS You can watch the first four episodes of “Grace and Frankie,” season 7 right now on Netflix.
