Whoopi’s Back in the habit!

Another person who has been begging Disney for a sequel is Whoopi Goldberg, on behalf of Sister Act.  Despite the popularity of the first two films, the studio hasn’t budged.  For a while, it seemed as if Whoopi might make the third installment with Tyler Perry, who offered to buy the rights from Disney.  The studio said no.  The original was adapted for the stage and became a hit musical.  Whoopi was not only one of the producers of the London production, she also appeared in the show in 2010 as the Mother Superior.  And she’s gonna do it again – this time as Deloris Van Cartier!  “I’ve been trying to get Sister Act 3 up and running and really met with a lot of resistance of people saying nobody wants to see it, it’s dated, it’s old, etc…So the guys who did Sister Act onstage said, ‘Would you come and do Deloris and we’ll make some adjustments,’ ‘cause, you know, I’m a little older.”  To sweeten the pot, the Mother Superior will be played by the absolutely fabulous Jennifer Saunders.  The limited run will play London’s West End next August.
