Whoopi Goldberg Eyes ‘Sister Act 3’

Published: Thursday 20th Jul 2017 by Sam

‘Sister Act’ may be on its way back to the big screen.

The 90s original and sequel have been cemented as classics in the eyes of many a millennial and now a whole new generation could be introduced to the world famous nuns.

Whoopi Goldberg, who played Deloris Van Cartier in both movies, spoke to Yahoo recently and revealed that a revival may well be on the cards. She said:

“I think that there will be a Sister Act 3. But I don’t know that I would be Deloris, which is OK, because it’s time for someone to do it. But it’s such a fun piece that I’m hoping someone will do it. Maybe I’ll direct it.”

While it’s not the first time Goldberg has hinted at the project, this is the most she’s said about the nature her own involvement in a theatrical reboot.

In the time since the earlier films, the actress has maintained close ties with all things ‘Sister Act’ – including producing a successful live adaptation that played on Broadway and London’s West End. During those ventures talented names such as Cynthia Erivo, Patina Miller, Raven Symone, and Alexandra Burke stepped into Deloris’ stilettos.

Released in 1992, ‘Sister Act’ went on to generate $231.6 million at the global box office. And while the worldwide total for its 1993 sequel ‘Sister Act: Back In The Habit’ remains undocumented, it did gross $57 million in the US alone.


If handled correctly, we’d be all the way here for this.

Sure, like many, we wouldn’t want our childhood memories marred by something potentially corny or subpar. But Goldberg’s involvement alleviates such worries.

The theater productions were stellar too; as such if the right team is assembled this could be a good look.

    Miss Whoopi is the only celeb in the world I’d like to meet and shake hands with. She’s edged in my childhood especially after playing Ms Masombuka in Sarafina

    Bring it, but only with Whoopi, and it has to be for the big screen, not Lifetime or ABC Family channel.

    They should do it with Whoopi in the lead. Sister Act 2 was such a huge disappointment, b/c it had no plot whatsoever. Actually, they missed the most obvious plot line of all — that Deloris needed to go back in hiding, and at the same convent, b/c who’d think to look for her there.

    Uzo from OITNB would be perfect. No changing the plot. Keep it urban. No auto tune. No corny Disney kids. Get real singers.

      Ryan Destiny is perfect for Lauryn Hills role she’s a great singer and actress and Lauryn should play her mother.
