According to Variety, Sister Act 3 is continuing to be developed for the new Disney streaming service, Disney+.
Whoopi Goldberg starred in the first Sister Act of 1992 as Deloris, a Las Vegas lounge singer who witnesses a murder committed by her criminal boyfriend. She’s placed in a convent in witness protection and becomes Sister Mary Clarence. Maggie Smith, Kathy Najimy, Wendy Makkena, Harvey Keitel, and Bill Nunn also starred. The film was followed up with both a sequel and a Broadway musical.
A rep for Goldberg tells Entertainment Weekly, “It is our understanding that this is not a continuation and Whoopi is not involved,”
She also told Good Morning Brittain, “We’ve been all over Disney begging and 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’ll be a brand-new rendition of Sister Act. And I guess I’ll walk through a scene and that’s how they’ll say I was part of it.”
Sister Act 3 joins a number of previously announced projects for Disney+, including two live-action Star Wars series and several surrounding Avengers characters. The live-action Lady and the Tramp and a female-centric Santa movie starring Anna Kendrick are also on the list.
Look for the new Disney+ service late next year.
