I hope you’re ready for nun more Sister Act movie, because Hollywood Reporter tells us there’s another one in the works for the “habit-forming franchise” (their words). Forgive me, Lord.
Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah — two of the most reliable writers in the female protagonist comedy space with credits that include Legally Blonde, The House Bunny and She’s the Man — are writing the latest chapter in the franchise, which spawned the 1992 original starring Whoopi Goldberg, a 1993 sequel and a Tony-winning Broadway musical.
It is unclear at this point if Goldberg would return for a third outing in some capacity. The project marks something of a homecoming for Smith and McCullah, whose first film, 10 Things I Hate About You, was produced and released by Disney. [THR]
They call it a “remake” in the headline and a “latest chapter in the franchise” in the article, so it’s a little unclear whether this will be a sequel, prequel, remake, or reboot (which are all things, sadly). My take is that they’re still at the “let’s make another singing nun movie” stage of the project. Maybe they could just call it “Pitch Perfect 3: Sister Act?” Honestly, this video of Whoopi Goldberg farting are the sum total of my thoughts on this.
Get it? It’s funny because her name is “Whoopi.”
