Oh Happy Day! Whoopi Goldberg just announced ‘Sister Act 3’

by Lauren Heskin
08th Oct 2020

Almost 30 years (!) since it first arrived on our screens, Whoopi Goldberg has just announced they’re trying to “get the gang together” for Sister Act 3.

Sequels and prequels (and whatever else the Marvel Universe is trying to do) might be overplayed in today’s film industry but this is one revival they’re definitely preaching to the choir about.

Whoopi Goldberg has said that they are “working diligently” on a Sister Act 3. Appearing via video link on The Late Late Show with James Cordon this week, she said they’re getting the gang together to make it happen.

1992’s Sister Act and 1993’s Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit were huge hits at the time, focusing on a Vegas lounge singer is forced to join a convent as a choir teacher when she witnesses her gangster boyfriend murder an informant.

Whoopi feels like, after speaking at length about the upcoming US election,  that people need a movie like the Sister Act franchise right now.  “They’re fun and it feels good… and you know, nobody’s mad,” she says laughingly.

Yes Whoopi we do need this, thank you!

“Listen,” she goes on, “bad singing, great singing, okay singing and then nuns. What’s better than that?”

So while Whoopi whips up a script we’ll just be here, being lulled through the day by the dulcet tones of Tanya Blount and Lauryn Hill.
