Tyler Perry has confirmed that scripting is underway for the anticipated second sequel to 90s hit comedy film ‘Sister Act’.
The sequel will see Whoopi Goldberg co-produce and return to star as Sister Mary Clarence.
“The script is being written, and I am the producer on it — not directing.
We brought on an incredible director [Tim Federle] and Whoopi’s really excited.
I think that this is just what the country needs.
We need that feel-good moment in the movies where you go, ‘Oh my God, I left there singing.
’ That’s my hope,” Perry told The Hollywood Reporter.
Since the film’s second installment ‘Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit’ debuted in 1993, fans have held on for news of a sequel until Walt Disney officially announced in December 2020 at the Disney+ investors day.
Directed by Emile Ardolino with Goldberg in the lead role as the fan-favourite nightclub singer Deloris Van Cartier, the 1992 hit comedy centers on her attempt to hide from a mob in a convent of nuns.
