Break out your choir books and dust off your copy of ‘Salve Regina’, the nuns are back at it! Sister Act 3 is officially in the works.
25 years after Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit debuted, Sister Act 3 is now in development for Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+.
Plot and casting details are still unknown and sadly it seems like Whoopi Goldberg’s Deloris Van Cartier AKA Sister Mary Clarence will not be back.
“It is our understanding that this is not a continuation and Whoopi is not involved,” a rep told EW.
Goldberg starred in both previous films as a Las Vegas singer who is placed in a nunnery in witness protection after she witnesses her mob boss boyfriend commit murder.
“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,” Goldberg explained on Good Morning Britain. “And I guess I’ll walk through a scene and that’s how they’ll say I was part of it.”
Regina Hicks, an executive producer on HBO’s Insecure, and Karin Gist, showrunner of Fox’s Star, are writing the script for the film.
There’s no word on a release window for the new Sister Act film, but Disney+ is on track to launch later in 2019.
