Tyler Perry Shares an Update on ‘Sister Act 3’
Disney+ is in development on Sister Act 3, which has Whoopi Goldberg set to reprise her role as the outspoken Deloris Van Cartier or best known as Sister Mary Clarence. While noise on the project has been quiet, producer Tyler Perry has shared an update.
“I love the idea of us making this happen but you know, the Hollywood system moves a little slower than I’d like to,” Perry said during his appearance on The View on Sept. 22. “So we’ve got a good script. We’re off to a great start. We’re just trying to get everybody moving in the right direction so we can get it going.”
Goldberg, who is also a host on The View also chimed in about the long in development project. “They were sort of lukewarm for the longest time [about making the movie], they said nobody wanted to see it and then Tyler went in and said, ‘I want to see it.’ Next thing I knew, we were on. That’s the power of TP.”
Whoopi Goldberg is already signed on to return. The third movie in the Sister Act series comes nearly 30 years after Goldberg first starred as Deloris or as we come to know her, Sister Mary Clarence, the lounge singer turned singing nun. Keke Palmer has hinted at a possible role in the movie.
Tim Federle (Ferdinand, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series) will direct the project with Madhuri Shekar (The Nevers) writing the script. Goldberg will produce alongside Tyler Perry, Tom Leonardis.
