Hallelujah! Whoopi Goldberg Confirms That There’s Another Sister Act Movie in the Works
Whoopi Goldberg, who played the lounge singer/nun Deloris in the first two films, stopped by Good Morning Britain for a chat. She said that Disney has plans to create a new addition to series, but it looks like she may not be reprising her role.
The original 1992 comedy starred Goldberg as a Las Vegas club singer who joined a convent as part of a witness protection program. It earned her a Golden Globe and raked over $200 million worldwide while the sequel – starring a young Lauryn Hill – also fared well.
Goldberg told the morning show that Disney intends to go in a different direction with the film, and more than likely it will be an updated version of the original rather than a sequel.
“We’ve been all over Disney begging. They’ve decided that they’re going to go in a different direction with Sister Act. So it won’t be Sister Act 3 it will be a brand new rendition of, and I guess I’ll walk through a scene and that’s how they’ll say I was part of it.”
Speaking on the movie last year to Entertainment Weekly, Goldberg also said that although she would love to play Deloris again, she would expect and understand a younger actress filling the role. So far, Disney has not commented and it’s unclear whether we’ll see the other nuns back in their habits.
But fans of Sister Act can be excited that another movie will be coming down the pipeline. To hear the tidbits from Whoopi on Good Morning Britain, you can click here.
