Actress Whoopi Goldberg will soon star again as Deloris Van Cartier in Sister Act 3 as talks about production begin to stir.

As reported by Deadline, the third installment in the ‘Sister Act‘ franchise is gaining momentum at Disney as Tim Federle has been brought on to direct with Madhuri Shekar writing the script on the sequel starring Whoopi Goldberg. Goldberg will reprise her role as Deloris, the nightclub singer turned nun, and will also produce the pic along with Tyler Perry. Tom Leonardis is also producing.

The original film followed Deloris, a nightclub singer who is forced to go into a hiding as a nun at a a convent , and ends up turning the convent choir into a soulful chorus complete with a Motown repertoire, until the sudden popularity of the choir jeopardizes her identity. The original film went on to be a huge hit leading to a sequel in 1993. As Disney continues to try to build up its content on Disney+, the studio has been taking a look at old movies to reboot. After Goldberg showed interest in reprising the role, the sequel began taking form.

According to Looper, further casting and plot remains uncertain. However, Keke Palmer playfully asked to be casted for “any job” within the Sister Act franchise while on The View.
