Whoopi Goldberg hints on production of ‘Sister Act 3″


Whoopi Goldberg has hinted there could be a Sister Act 3 in the works.

The actor was speaking to James Corden on The Late Late Show and revealed she was still keen to reprise her iconic character Sister Mary Clarence.

The original movie came out in 1992 and was a box office hit, with sequel Sister Act 2: Back in The Habit being released the following year.

But when Corden asked Goldberg why they never made a third one, the 64-year-old actor told the Brit host that studio bosses said no one ever wanted it.

She said: “Because for a long time they kept saying no one wanted to see it and then quite recently it turns out that may not be true, people might want to see it.

“So we’re working diligently to figure out how to get the gang together and come back.

“It’s a really fun movie, it feels good and nobody’s mad, it’s just, like, listen, bad singing, great singing, ok singing, and then nuns. What’s better than that?”

The original movie saw Goldberg’s character – Deloris – attempt to escape her old life and join a convent disguised as Sister Mary Clarence, helping her fellow nuns to become more confident.

The goofy sequel, directed by Bill Duke, saw Sister Mary Clarence return, this time working as a music teacher at a struggling school.

But it’s not the only classic movie that could soon return to our screens for another outing.

Aaron Sorkin has told MTV’s ‘Happy Sad Confused’ Podcast that we could yet see a follow up to The Social Network .

He said: “I do want to see it. And [producer Scott Rudin] wants to see it.

“People have been talking to me about it because of what we’ve discovered is the dark side of Facebook. Do I want to write that movie? Yeah I do. I will only write it if David [Fincher] directs it. If Billy Wilder came back from the grave and said he wanted to direct it, I’d say I’d only do it with David.”

In the 10 years since The Social Network was released, Facebook has grown exponentially and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. So there’s still plenty more for Sorkin to explore should he decide to make another.
