During Disney’s Investor Day Presentation in December 2020, Disney officially confirmed that Sister Act 3 was in development and would be coming to Disney+. No other details were announced at that time except Whoopi Goldberg would return to star and produce, with Tyler Perry on board as a producer as well.
Last October, it was revealed that Tim Federle had been tapped to direct the movie with Madhuri Shekar writing the script. Tom Leonardis was also added as a producer. Additional details about the project have been pretty quiet since then until last month when The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg recently welcomed Jenifer Lewis to the show and expressed her hopes to work with Lewis again on the third film.
Speaking recently on Comedy Central’s Hell of A Week with host Charlamagne Tha God, Goldberg listed Lizzo, Keke Palmer, and Nicki Minaj as among those she’d like to bring to the third edition of the film comedy.
“I want everybody,” she said when asked about casting. “I want as many people who want to have some fun, because I really, desperately need to have some fun.”
Goldberg also added that the script for the new film will be delivered by the end of this month.
