Whoopi Goldberg contacts her publicly sister law co-star Maggie Smith.
She really wants to be part of the planned movie, which Disney announced in 2020, which would be a sequel to the 1992 hit sister law and years 1993 Sister Act 2: Back in the habit, which follows the adventures of a nightclub singer (Goldberg’s Deloris Van Cartier) as she tries to hide from the mob at a convent, posing as Sister Mary Clarence, and eventually transforming the choir for good. Smith played Mother Superior (a.k.a. the Reverend Mother), who initially becomes angry at Deloris’ ways, but eventually comes to.
Goldberg made the plea Friday during an appearance on the British talk show Loose Women.
“One of the things I definitely want to do while I’m here is… I want to let Maggie Smith know I’m taking on the role of Mother Superior for you,” Goldberg said. “Because I can’t do it with anyone but you. So if you want me to come over here and shoot it down and do what we need to do, we’ll do what you want us to do, but we don’t want to do it without you, Maggie.”
Born in the United Kingdom and made a lady by Queen Elizabeth II in 1990, the eighty-eight-year-old Smith is still regularly seen on the big screen. Yahoo Entertainment has contacted its representative.
Otherwise, Goldberg noted, she “likes the film’s script” and is trying to “get a director.”
In October, she told Yahoo she was planning on the new sister law is to bring people a “foolish luck”. She explained that she was inspired to make a sequel all these years later when Disney+ went ahead with the sequel to another ’90s favorite, Hocus Pocus, that month. Both films co-starred Kathy Najimy, who reprized her role in the Halloween favorite and is expected to do the same with Goldberg and the gang.
