Disney Planning Reboot of Whoopi Goldberg's Classic 'Sister Act'


Oh happy day! Seeing as Disney is just as obsessed with early '90s nostalgia as the rest of America, they've found yet another film from the internet's most-beloved decade to revive.

This time, it's Disney's 1992 Whoopi Goldberg comedy Sister Act!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has tapped screenwriters Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah -- the comedy writing team behind 10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde, Ella Enchanted and The House Bunny -- to pen this new installment in the Sister Act franchise.

The original starred Goldberg as a lounge singer in Reno who goes into witness protection at a convent in San Francisco after a Mafioso puts a bounty on her head.

It's unclear whether The View co-host would reprise her role as Deloris Van Cartier (a.k.a Sister Mary Clarence) as no plot details have yet to be revealed.

The original film made $139.6 million at the box office, making it the sixth highest-grossing film of 1992. It spawned a less-successful sequel and a wildly popular stage musical.
